I have an asus en9600gt top, and I am adding an en9600gt to run in sli. I am probably going to either buy or make some heatsinks for the memory chips. Today at work a guy from the company that supplies all of our fasteners and 3M tape products stopped in and I asked him if they carry any type of thermal conductive tape. He asked me what it would be for and I told him, then he asked me what the surface of a memory chip is made of and I wasn't too sure. I know it really doesn't matter but any true enthusiast will tell you that when presented with a question you don't know the answer to, you have to find out. I searched all over the net but i guess this question doesn't come up too often. My initial guess would be silicon and possibly glass but I have no idea. Also, I don't know anything about conductive tape so is there a certain type I should be looking for or are they all about the same?

The surface that you would be adhering too is the plastic memory IC package, not the silicon of the chip inside.

I want to fasten the heatsinks to the memory chips on the back of the memory cards and I don't want them to fall off. It is a desktop.
