i might use some and put on top of my back plates, should help a lot with good airflow from front. it will look like gipsy mod but nowdays there are no backplates with heatsinks like those small ones -.-

my top card back plate is sometime warm to touch, wouldnt say hot but aint far from it, even when back fan is mounted as intake and blows some air on it but without success to cool it down a lot since surface is, how it is...

those heatsinks didnt have any glue.

i buy tape ultra thin from 3m (1st picture) and used so its easier to remove in the future if i need.

also there are videos on the internet that show if you remove the main heatsink from the gpu that normaly is sticky with the vram, and switch to a fan (kraken g12) the temperatures drop 10ºC.
