Nothing can replace thermal paste. Lhuser you are trying to take too many shortcuts on this system you have. You're going to have to follow some normal procedures or you're going to have an exspencive center piece for the coffee table.

It seems thermal tape is becoming popular. Don't like it myself, but it works....

I don't think I used anything like thermal paste, pad, or liquid on the box I'm on now. I just bought some heatsink from CompUSA and stuck it on. I even over clocked it. I guess I'll have to fork over for a new processor though if it decides to fry soon.

It would have already fried by now. Most heat-sinks come with thermal compound already on them in a little square in the middle. It's pretty common.
