Default Thermal glue

Would it be a good/bad idea to use some arctic silver or something similar when I install a heatsink on my backdraft 8e motor?

I have never tried it, but it would probably help quite a bit. I don't see how it could hurt anything. If you try it let us know.

i forget what it was called, but i bought some stuff from radio shack to put on my xbox 360's graphics card heatsink. the old stuff had dried up and the graphics card would heat up and shut down.
but a product like that would be safe to use. not sure if its needed tho. the heatsink on a RC motor fits very tightly to the motor. the contact of metal to metal alone should transfer heat very well.

Yeah, but using that stuff helps tremendously with heat transfer, try building a Pc and not using it on the heat sinc, sometime, guarantee you it will overheat, I say go for it
