I just got a HR-03 Plus used but adhesive tape on the memory heatsinks has been used. So I was to replace it. Should I use thermal adhesive or tape and who's should I use?

I thought about this Arctic Silver ASTA-7G (2-PC-SET) Premium Silver Thermal Adhesive but it says it's permanent. So if I ever want to take it off I cannot.

Sekisui #5780 has far more tack than any of the 3M types I have tried.

I have a roll of the stuff, if you want some PM me.

Where did you get it? Don't need any now but I will in the future. Plan on getting a 8800GT. (nana2)

I used Sekisui #5760 tape to fit my ramsinks, seems to be very good stuff!
