Where can I buy thermal pads locally?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I really don't want to order online, the shipping will cost just as much as the pad and wont get here for a while. There has to be a place locally that sells it. I went to home depot and lowes and no one even knew what I was talking about. I went to radio shack and asked them and they didn't know what it was either so I asked where their thermal paste was cause the pads might be next to it and they didn't even know what thermal paste was. Then I went to a little mom and pop computer store and they had every kind of thermal interface material except for what I needed. Can someone help? I only need a 5" x 1" piece if that.

Thermal tape or thermal pads? I have some spare thermal tape, super thin, Japanese brand.

Shore! This is what I got: Used like 3 pads for my mosfet and 5970 waterblock, so if you're just doing a mosfet, one pad will work wonderfully and leave you with plenty extra.

Edit: (As I said in my other post, if it's longer than 60mm, you should get this, which it probably is, so I'd get this, I think my mosfet I got already had this with it)

94x15x.5mm pad

60x50x.5mm pad:

It worked great, I ordered from them twice and super fast shipping both times.

Just make sure that whatever you choose, it's long enough for the mosfet you're replacing.

This would also work very well if your mosfet is longer than 60mm.

Thanks, I think .5mm would be too thin. Does it matter? I have some 1mm thick stuff to use as a comparison that I'm about to use to install my my gpu water block and even the 1mm looks much thinner than what I originally took off the mosfet cooler. It was pretty thick at least 2mm. I'll keep looking around.


$1.99 to buy $4.80 to ship?! Just put it in a white frickin envelope!
