Thumbs up Double sided Thermal Tape!

Hi, I'm looking for a little bit of double sided thermal tape to tape my ram heatsink on to the ram chips which have come off slightly and seems to have got dust on them (and therefore stay back on :()

Would rather not send back for RMA as shipping costs will be much higher than to repair myself.

Hopefully looking for downtown GTA so I can meet up and give cash because EMT costs will probably be half the bit of tape itself :(

Looking for maybe 15" worth? Let me know if you've got some to spare :) Thanks!


edit: Or maybe someone can recommend me a place to purchase them locally for reasonably cheap. Or maybe someone has some spare they're willing to donate by lettermail?

I don't like thermal tape - even the 3m stuff doesn't work most of the time. Nothing like hearing "clink, clink" inside your case after installing them + letting them set overnight.
I use arctic silver alumina thermal adhesive.. way better. The heatsink "can" be removed (YMMV).. but with great force and if your ram is solid to the board, lol.
