    I searched through the forums and didn't really find an answer to my question. So unfortunate for you folks here at TPU, because that means I get to bother all you fine people! :toast:

    I'm in the process of putting on an AM vga cooler on my GTX 480 as it runs a little to warm for my taste. The cooler I'm looking into says that I would want to replace my thermal pads/tape. I'm not really sure what thickness or type I should go with though.


    I was told these were the best to use:

    What cooler are you sticking on the card? 3M tape works well as long as you don't need to worry about clearence and/or if you're just sticking heatsinks on the ram/mosfets/etc.
