I have searched dozens of net shops and cannot find Arctic Silver Epoxy. Does anybody have any extra ?

Yes, I have this but haven't used it yet, it should do the trick, much better price per unit that arctic silver/alumina.

TechIngredients is solid, lots of good informative videos too.

I mean you're not cooling a CPU or anything right? Why can't regular old silicone thermal grease work?
Maybe for the super hot parts use some MX4 or MX5

I am actually using the thermal cement for attaching an copper heatsink to an NVME. I have used Arctic Silver many time to apply heat sinks. It has really good thermal properties.

Correct me if I'm wrong (please!) but I thought Arctic Silver epoxy had been discontinued.

Just use a thermal pad like everyone else and don't make things more complicated for yourself. Eventually you will want to replace/sell the nvme drive anyways.

Actually, I have found that if jb weld is mixed 1:2 with Arctic aluminum and spread very thin as usual, it has excellent thermal properties. They are very similar to arctic aluminum by itself. Yet it maintains very good adhesion.
