Pros easy to us perfect to replace ram heatsink paste
Cons costly for only 3.5 x 3.5 cm only one time use only
Summary I get this with a price match. If you can get it for less then a dollar its worth the money if you need to replaced for heat sink rams. Can have a strong hold on chipset heatsinks. I do not recommend using these for cpu heatsinks.
Pros 3M Tape for when you need an adhesive to mount a heatsink and don't want to buy/use an epoxy; one of the only tape skus available, especially in a size suitable for larger heatsinks (e.g. chipset). NCIX shipped them in their own protective box to avoid damage (thanks!)
Cons Actually only 3cm sq. as has been mentioned. Irregularly cut by hand; sizing imprecise. Expensive to buy one small square at a time (pm).
Summary Mine were hand cut from a larger sheet and individually bagged in small ziplocs. I would much rather buy this in the larger sheet / in bulk, which would be more economical. Price match advised.
I haven't actually applied these yet to know their hold strength. My chipset applications are horizontal, meaning that the tape does not generally need to support the weight of the sink. I don't know if supporting a 32g heatsink on its side would be feasible (no idea).
Summary Has been 3M branded when I have ordered. Not much to day - a simple piece of Thermal Tape. The ones I have used have been used with chipset coolers where the retention bracket on the motherboard has broken. This won't keep it on super tight but it has worked in these situations. For a bit more cash, I'd say go for the Arctic Silver Thermal Glue, as it will be a much tighter and more secure fit (though it will, of course, be permanent)
