yeah, look for Artic Alumina Thermal Epoxy. Keep in mind that it is permanant and you will NOT be able to get it off.

No, but it's not the same thing that they're talking about. Thermal compound you will still have to screw down the heatsink/fan, it's just regular thermal paste.

Uh why do you have a GPU without a heatsink in the first place? Yeah you need epoxy to glue it on.

Maybe he wants to jerry-rig one on there or something. I hope it isn't an expensive GPU.
