    instead of a copper shim (depending on the thinness) it's better to use a thick layer of thermal paste.
    I've uses MX-2 in the past and it was great, hard to apply but it would make a perfect contact. much better then a piece of copper in between.
    but copper +TIM is always better then a pad.

    Sorry, I was reading about it on another thread on this site, and they seemed pretty happy with them.

    User experience is user experience.

    At least I set you guys straight on TIM. Never recommend Cooler Master TIM to anyone. Test my hearing? Learn English or stick to Portuguese websites.

    Who is arguing about math or numbers? LOL. Google translate doesn't really translate nuances of language does it?

    You're right user experience is user experience. :) All I did was suggest a thermal pad, I never said anything to you. You insulted my hearing on a text based website then proceeded to try and mock my math skills as well. So far I haven't made any comments that have to do with hearing or math, but keep it up.

    Back on the subjet of thermal pads, anyone know of good pads that are only tacky/sticky on one side? I've been using these Bergquist pads for a while now. Basically, the pink side isn't sticky while the opposite side is. Helpful since the pads stay put and don't try to lift away when I remove the heatsink.

    Anything similar to these, but maybe with better thermals?

    there are all kind of pads. sticky in both sides, sticky in one side, non sticky.
    performance is not measured by stickyness.

    Er... not sure why you're telling me that.

    I'm looking for pads with one sticky/tacky side and one non-sticky side because they're easy to use and won't try to lift off or tear if I'm removing the heatsink all the time.

    do you care more about that or about the thermal conductivity?
    you can't have both.
