Artic Silver Silver Adhesive providing it'll fit. I use that to mount a SS7
HSF to a GF2 GTS

I wouldn't use that. Its too messy and too much risk. I know its better
thermally then everything else, but I found its hard to work with. I find when
you try to attach heatsinks they slide all over the place and the stuff goes
everywhere which is not good because its slightly conductive.
I would use Artic Alumina Adhesive instead. It is super strong and it seems to
dry quicker and grab onto the heatsink without it sliding all over the place
as you apply pressure. Its not as good thermally as Arctic Silver adhesive, but
its close.

I always do. Or some variation thereof. With a fan of course.

One more thing about the Arctic Alumina. If you have any left over its great
to use for other things also because its heat resistant and you don't have to
worry about it shorting anything out.
I've used it to cover wires that I have soldered, to hold on an 80mm fan I
attached to my video card, to glue a pot to my motherboard for a vcore
mod....etc great stuff!

Good point. It's not for newbs but the thermal properties are far superior
than the Alumina. I had my HSF clamped on for 30minutes and was using it
the next morning so the cure time is about the same. Once again, the silver
isn't for the newbs. If you are scared, use the Alumina.

I'm far from being a newb, and I still found the Artic Silver Adhesive very
hard to work with. I do think what your saying about the total cure time is
right, but thats not what I meant.
If you use both to attach heatsinks. You won't have to hold the heatsink with
the Artic Alumina as long. It seems to set quicker and the heatsink doesn't
slide as easy as with the Artic Silver Adhesive. When I have used the Artic
Silver adhesive with a clamp. The clamp would have to apply pressure directly
on center or the heatsink would slide all over the place, which I found to be
just about impossible. Using Alumina Adhesive with the same clamp the heatsink
would not slide as much and you would not need the clamp on as long as with
Arctic Silver adhesive.

I have never noticed the sliding of parts as you mention. That plus the
superior heat dissapation of the silver, well...there's my input for the OP.
Silver is not for the newbs.

Can you take off the old heatsink ?
If it strongly sticked you might break the GPU while trying to remove it, so
be carefull with that
