My only concern with using a piece of copper with thermal paste on the sides is that the thermal conductivity of copper may not be the same as the original thermal pad. I would assume that it could work, but I would do my best to try and replace the pad with a similar one.

A lot of time, there will be people selling pre-cut slices of thermal pad [|on ebay].

I have also purchased thermal pads [|from Digi-Key].

You should be able to read the processor temperature on the desktop. If you do decide to try and use a copper spacer, then be sure to check the temperature and make sure that it is within operating limits.

Good luck and let us know how it works out.
