    This is the question!
    BTW i have Krazy Glue and Contact Glue.
    It's to glue small heatsinks on the memory of my vid card.
    The heatsinks are cutted from old pentium heatsinks.

    probably not a good idea. The glue will probably act more like an insulator than transfer. Not to mention the heat may cause problems with the clue and it may not mix well with the TIM. I could be wrong though :shrug:
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    Don't mix them, but use the thermal paste for contact and the glue around the edges to hold it down.

    that, or, if you have $8 to spare, buy some thermal adhesive. I got arctic alumina, it works like a charm :thumb: .
