This picture and instruction sequence is from T_Power on FPGA Server in #SQR_Acorn channel on 4/5/2019. I am just reposting it because I thought it was good information.

Use Dremel or file to grind the edge that will cover the capacitor

Take the adhesive pad off, but use a bit to insulate where the capacitor will be. Don't want shorts.

Check fitting of heatsink, nice and flush on Vreg, and no short on other components.

I used "Heatsink Plaster", again from AliExpress, to secure the heatsink.

No need to be shy with the amount used, it's naturally electrically non conductive. Just watch out non get on the edge connector.

Press down firmly and let cure.
