you can't use regular AS5 because it does not set. there is Arctic Silver "thermal adhesive" though

the pre applied thermal tape is good enough already, no need to use any thermal adhesive. At least this way you can take em off if your card ever dies or you decide to put them on another card. Some people use a combination of as5 and as adhesive but it will cost you even more money when the tape is sufficient.
