Well I got some MC14 ramsinks for my x1900 cards which are supposed to be the best ramsinks since they are copper. Well guess what the best ramsinks come with the worst thermal tape on them, this stuff won't hold anything! So I guess I need to get some better double sided thermal tape on these, any suggestions?

Well instead of using thermal tape you could use AS5 ceramic so it will stick and stay there for sure

This might work for you, dont know how hard they would be to get off, I've never used it...Well as far as that goes they might not stay on good either, it's getting late I need to go to bed....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

Ya, 3M is reputable and their products are quality <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Thumb"> . Just don't make the mistake I made awhile back and get the 3M high Temp double tape that is about 1/16" thick (too thick) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> . You will want the "thin" type for thermal transfer to the heatsink.

Yeah, my ones aren't thick, you would have to chop them down to make them fit on ram chips
