I recently watercooled my GPU.
Only problem is that the VRAM heatsinks I bought had some bad stickers.
"No problem, I'll just a bit of this EWKB thermal pad" I thought.

That's not working either. 2 of the heatsinks have already fallen off.
What are my options for keeping the little buggers on the card?

EKWB thermal pads aren't adhesive, so they won't work regardless.

You can use adhesive thermal pads/tape if you want still want to be able to remove the heat sinks down the road.

Or if you want it to be permanent you can use thermal adhesive paste/glue, it technically can still be removed, but its a massive pain and can damage your card if not careful.

Did you make sure to thoroughly clean the surface of the VRAM IC's before mounting the heatsinks? Arctic Cooling recommends an eraser.

Late reply, I cleaned them with isopropyl alcohol & kitchen paper.

New stickers held the pads on no problem now.
