    Chipset heatsink adhesive tape


      Intel uses double-sided tape under chipset heat sinks. Is that tape available on the open market? Is all of that tape pretty much the same?


      I ask because I am working on a system where the heat sink was removed (don't ask). I tried thermal compound, but the temperatures were maybe ten degrees higher than on a comparable system. I saw similar stuff for sale at Newegg and Amazon Marketplace.
