Is crazy glue conductive?

I've gotten back the ram sinks I had my buddy cut to size for me, now I've just got to lap them and attach them. When I do I'm probably going to use AA (non-adhesive) to help disperse the heat with a bit of crazy glue on the corners to hold them on. What I'm wondering is is crazy glue conductive? Do I have to worry about shorting anything out?

Also do you think that crazy glue is strong enough to hold this sink onto the gpu or should I use epoxy for that one?

I used 2 little drops of superglue one @ each end of my home made ram sinks with ASII in the middle works great.

As a matter of fact it's the same superglue I used for the pits on my XP1600+ befor unlocking it.

What orientation on that top-side fan do you have? It looks to be blowing onto the card but I'm not sure. Have you tried both blowing and sucking (I mean the fan damnit )?

Crazy/superglue/most epoxy are non-conductive.

I think he's blowing both fans on the card (air here! )

It looks that way to me too but wouldn't having the the top fan suck be more effective given that hot air rises?

Chronoacrilate- the purest form of superglue avalible- and it sicks to anything- i glued my hands together until my dad dumped 1/2gal of paint thinner on them! I used before a drop in each corner of the chip and asII inbetween-

As far as I know, once it dries, no, it is not conductive. If the heatsinks are heavy, you might wanna use epoxy, but those don't look too big. You should be fine with superglue. Just let it cure completely before you fire it up.
