Default thermal pads.......

Hey guys, dont know where to post this, but i guess since it concerns my mobo mosfet and NB-SB heatsinks, i would just post it here...

so anybody know where to get thermal pads in GTA(Mississauga, etc) or K/W?

i cant just use TIM on the mosfet heatsinks right?

Just out of curiosity, why would it be a bad idea to use TIM on the MOSFETs?

I personally wouldn't use it, as I find the mosfet heatsinks have very little downward pressure.
