Using Both Thermal Grease and Thermal Adhesive to attach Heatsinks
One of the questions we are often asked...is there a way to safely remove GPU/Memory Heatsinks for use on another card later without having to use those less efficient thermal interface pads?
The answer is yes...but you have to plan for it ahead of time. Possibily, if you didn't plan ahead, the only way you're going to get them off is to decide whether you are willing to sacrifice the Video Card or the Ramsinks and use a rotary tool to cut them apart - but that's a little extreme.
The key is to use both thermal adhesive AND thermal grease.
