StarTech Heatsink Thermal Pads - Thermal Pad
Available online only

- Didn't Work as advertised- December 26, 2019
Purchased a package of the Heatsink Thermal Pads about two months ago at the local Micro Center (Stock Number 560243). About a month ago I needed to use them but, I couldn't get them to work. The Thermal Pads stuck to the backing material and NOTHING I did would cause the pads to stick to the Heat Sink! I tried several with no Joy. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. I had to make a 50 mile trip to the local Micro Center to buy a tube of heatsink thermal paste.
- Performs as bubble gum.- May 12, 2017
I wasted my money on these pads. The instructions are very vague and confusing. I couldn't tell if I was supposed to keep the blue plastic or not. The wax paper peels onto the material leaving a residue that blocks the heat it is meant to conduct. If you try to remove the wax paper fibers, the material becomes like bubble gum and gets destroyed and uneven. I have no idea on how this product made it to market.
- Like others, pads would not stick- August 18, 2020
The pad material would not separate from the backing, just like the other reviews. The only thing I did not try was to briefly fire up the processor without a heat sink to melt the material onto the processor to get it to separate. Save your money. These pads are no good.
