actually, nanotubes have high thermal conductivity due to their
rigidity, but along the axis.

your description is too vague to give specific advice. it looks from
your description, that you are not considering time scales (and
possibly also length scales) well enough and that you are looking at a
slow process. if that is the case, there is no use to accelerating
this process with a thermostat. you will replace computer simulation
with computer animation and the scientific value of your results will
approach zero.
