I would not use any adhesive, heard too many horror stories of people using it and never being able to remove it, I would use a brand name thermal compound like the one mentioned above.

this what your looking at? and i would check to see if the ones you have do not have a paper film on the back of them already and adhesive underneath...

Well do your research on which one you get as there have been posts on here where it has ruined videocards, I think there are some good thermal tapes that work quite well. :biggrin:

Any good one will do the job for you. In my opinion, you should use the same TIM that you use with CPU.
There is no need to buy anything special.
