    Im looking for some thermal paste that is non conductive and will attach a small heatsink onto a small collection of chips on my MB. Any ideas?

    And also, perhaps i'm being stupid but when i logged in this afternoon the quick reply tag at the bottom has disappeared how can i get it back?

    EDIT: will the thermal tape attached to the bottom of the heatsinks be ok anyway?

    Thanks

    Arctic Silver Thermal Epoxy, but it's like super glue. You can dilute it with ceramique in a 50/50 mix and it should let you take off the sinks at a later date if you want to.

    Personally if it's for chips on a MB I would just use thermal tape.

    Tape won't short anything, the Epoxy will, but only if you're very messy and get it all over any exposed metal parts.
