I am going to be getting the Kraken G12 soon for my RTX 2080 Super and it just occurred to me with the exposed underside I might as well add extra cooling with tiny heatsinks.

Is copper the best? And as they'll be upside down will the thermal adhesive hold? Any recommendations on a specific brand would be appreciated.

Copper is better and yes they are sticky:

Thank you, awesome video! One thought I had was; is it possible the black paint on the aluminum sinks restricted the heat transfer somewhat?

Hey guys I still can't find a good thermal tape choice. I have been reading so many conflicting stories and experiences. Many claim the heatsinks that come with thermal always fall off, and they buy a separate thermal adhesive.

So I have the heatsinks I want now just something that can stay permanently stuck upside down that has a high temperature rating. Any ideas for brand names and choices? Thanks.
