Have run into a bit of a conundrum . . . I need to re-apply some AS5 to my GPUs, as they've been starting to overheat recently, but the problem I know I'll face is in dealing with the TIM pads on the VRMs and DRAM modules. These cards have already been apart once before, and a good portion of the TIM pads were already falling apart . . . enough so that I had a hard time "packing" it back together and "re-activating" it with some isopro . . . I've found a couple of sites where I can get ahold of sheets of TIM pad material, and cut to fit . . . but, for starters, I'd have to wait for these retailers to get a new shipment of stock - not to mention the price is a little ridiculous for what they are, and I really have no idea what kind of TIM padding it is, either . . . So, brings me to my question - anyone have any known good "alternatives" for replacing TIM pads? Any other easily accessible material that performs equally or on par? Any "creative" solutions?
