    I had an Intel 486 DX-50MHz (not a DX2!) and it hadn't heatsink....

    I remember burning my fingertip when I touched it while working....

    But still it was reliable. Even 4+ years after buying it, when Pentium 200MHz+, PCI (this machine was Vesa Local Bus) and Windows 95 were the norm, and I was using Windows 3.11, Win32S and WinG to try running modern applications on its scarce resources...

    Safest bet -- and it would do double duty for you -- would be Arctic Silver's thermal adhesive.

    I've used it on aftermarket video RAMsinks on Radeon 9xxx series boards a lot, since if you bother putting sinks on them you can usually get another 15% memory clock off them. It's how my old Radeon 9500 Pro in the Athlon era ran circles around the 9800's.

    Would probably be far more efficient than whatever Intel used.

    But then, more efficient than what Intel used is still going on. See the whole "de-lidding" thing. I cracked the lid off my i7 4770k and replaced the thermal paste with Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut (after conformal coating) and now set to 4.4ghz overclock my idle temps are 5C over ambient (in a 19C temperature controlled room) and peaks after running prime95 for an hour are at 55C... and those temps are on a air cooler -- admittedly a big bad Phantek TC-14PE. That's a full 10C drop at idle and 30C drop under load over the stock TIM between the die and spreader and TX-4 between the spreader and sink.

    Fun times.
