    remove and get new thermal tape. Simple solution :p

    Question is just where to get new ones.

    I know I've got spare somewhere... my V7F700-CU came with some extra tape, but not enough to cover 8 ramsinks....

    try some glue :p (Pls don't, I'm joking)

    you could use a thermal adhesive like this

    also, a common (and cheaper) method people use is to put thermal compound in the center and put dabs of super glue in the corners. I have never tried it myself but I have read that it works quite well.

    cheers :wave:

    I'd recommend the arctic silver thermal adhesive over the superglue thing. Superglue seems like a pretty messy thing to work with.....
