removable thermal tape or adhesive?


does anyone know of a good thermal tape or adhesive that is not permanent?

i would like to get a thermal tape or adhesive to put some ramsinks on my 8800gt, but, i want to be able to remove them if i would ever need to reinstall the stock cooler in order to send the card back to the manufacturer.

thanks

Most thermal tapes can easily be removed after a quick trip in the freezer. In fact, most thermal tapes remove themselves given time and gravity (my experience). There is no thermal adhesive that can be considered removable.


Another alternative, is using a generic thermal compound, with a dab os super glue on the corner of the ram chip (just a DAB). This can also be removed at a later date.
