I could. In the midst of looking for some thermal pads for my motherboard. It looks like there's only 2 heatsinks on it, so I may as well replace both. Problem is, I don't really know what I'm looking for. I seen this roll of tape looking one, is that just a roll of thermal pads? Would it be a better idea to just get heatsinks for the RAM and just use those pads for the motherboard or are they too thin etc? It's a lot cheaper that way as it seems individual pads cost the same amount as a ram cover and 2 pads.
