I use the enzotechs and the tape worked well for me too. IIRC in the instructions it says to apply pressure for 30s. Anyone find any r-theta numbers for the sekisui stuff?

Just got my roll of tape in. Holy cwap that's a lot of thermal tape!!!! :)

I'm still working on my DFI Dark getting the enzo sinks installed, but the stock tape (pads) seem to work well if you are installing the whole block. They don't work so well when you cut the block up for smaller applications so this tape will come in handy.

I'm not sure, but I expect the tape will transfer heat better as it's normal tape thickness while the enzo blocks have pads.

Got mine too last evening, and will use it this week-end on the P5E and the second 280GTX.

Jeez... 50m. I'll never use all that.

I don't see why it would be a problem. I'd remove the backing for the open side though as it might fall off inside your case and foul a fan.

Got mine wednesday, and yeah that's a crap load of tape! Quick 'n' painless, for sure I'll be using them again since they have some goodies that NCIX & DC doesn't. FWIW cheaper shipping for small items than DC even, though I had to wait a few extra days but I'm OK with that.

Ancient bump (this was the first result with "thermal tape" on Google), does anyone have some tape in Toronto? Specifically scarborough. Retailers, fleabayers, etc. I just need a couple pieces to replace the ones on my 4870 because I got them dirty lol.

Would that arctic silver adhesive stuff work? Maybe mixed with mx-2 or as5?
