Windows 7: Question about a 2mm thermalpad and what I can use it for.

Question about a 2mm thermalpad and what I can use it for.

My cousin got me some sort of AAB Cooling thermal pad, at least I think that's what it is. But its quite thick. Here is the exact model. Model : Thermopad Glue 20x130x2 1.5W/mK. I am including a pic of it. Could this be used to for VRM heatsinks? Or if I cut shapes out of it, for the north bridge? I am asking, because it looks very thick. It has glue on both sides, I did not open it up yet, so the glue is covered with the strips. What can I use this for, if anything? And is there any performance gain?

Should be able to pull plastic off both sides and use it for all sorts of cooling needs just not CPU and large chip uses normally. I think you'll be holding on to this for a long time as even upgrading to water cooled GPU waterblocks the parts that need this tape will be provided.
