Hello, I've removed the fan from my Acer Aspire 5733 by completely taking every single part of the laptop to access it :??:  I've noticed dark sticky tape which held the fan to the heat pipe, is it an ordinary masking tape or is it resistant to heat etc.? I want to replace it as it's full of dust and doesn't stick anymore.

If anyone could clarify that, I would be grateful.

EDIT: Can I use blue electrical tape instead?

well electrical tape has some sort of heat resistance. chances are that the glue on the tape will melt first before the actual tape does. the melting point of most electrical tape is about 80* C thats about 170* F

i think you should be fine.
