Will double-sided tape conduct heat?
Grab some double side thermal tape, like the stuff that comes pre-installed on RAMsinks.
BTW, do you have a link for that backplate you ordered for the VRMs? Is is shorter than a RAMsink? I'm thinking about getting something to cool my PULSE chips......
Thermal tape link:
BTW from what I've heard, using any kind of thermal paste on IC chips isn't a good idea. That stuff is usually capacitive (not very conductive though) and can cause problems if they span across a live circuit on the PCB.
That link I showed has descriptions for the applications involved. It has some pretty good stuff there, such as thermal conductivity, elasticity, etc. This way you can find something that conducts well, but doesn't need support after it's been applied. If you want something to attach a VRM sink with I would use something that doesn't permanently bond to the IC, in case you have to RMA.
