M.2 Heatsink Glue ?

I'd like to put some little heatsinks onto my M.2 drive as it's average temp is 60'c and I'd like to bring this down, I did get in touch with Corsair and they told me that 60'c is completely fine and within spec but knocking a few degrees off wouldn't hurt IMO.

I bought myself some little heatsinks but they came without any adherent, What would be best for thermal conductivity and sticking power ?

Youd need thermal tape or if you never want them off thermal epoxy

I did manage to get that aquacomputer heatsink fitted to my MP500 though....

Thermal tape sounds good, Any suggestions on that front ? I have zero experience with it

It will always be trial and error.

When it gets warm it can drop off, if it doesnt youll never get them off if you ever need to

Basically once theyre on they should just be on
