I would think tape is the wrong thing to use.  Try articsliver epoxy.  If you don't want it permenante then mix in equal parts of articsliver thermal compond.  Check their web site for instruction.  Anybody have any ideas?

put as2 on the core, with little dabs of superglue on the corners of the core, and then stick on your BLORB.

here are some different options:
1) turn your computer upside-down.

or
2) put your heatsink in place, then fill any air space in your case with that spray insulation stuff.

or
3) get a heatsink that's so big that it can rest on the bottom of your case and still be touching your vid card.

or
4) put your computer on a desk if it isn't already, then place a broom vertical on the floor next to it, then prop the broom handle against the heatsink.

or
5) submerge your entire computer in a huge tub full of non-conductive thermal compound.

samething here, i put a socket 7 heatsink on my radeon and it fell off every now and then with thermal tape.  Get artic epoxy, i can carry my whole motherboard, including cards and the radeon itself just by the heatsink.. not kidding.  Next i'll try the whole case.. graphic card my brake off, but heatsink will always stay on!  Oh yea also, artic is betta then tape for thermal transfer.

I know those ideas would work, but I would go for thermal adhesive.
