    So they're claiming it's 50% better than Arctic Silver, but what's its real life benefit - does it really make a difference to cooling? Gurus of bit-tech, I lay the gauntlet before your feet: I demand some testing :D

    Agreed. I'm not sure I've seen a bit test of TIMs myself.

    Agreed - I'd love to know real-world benefits of using modern compounds vs standard ones. Last time I checked it made a difference of like 2 or 3 degrees and was only important when wanting to max-out your OC.

    I seem to recall reading a massive roundup of TIMs a few years ago, where they compared an absolute ton of different brands but also threw into the mix the likes of toothpaste and butter :D Surprisingly, the odd stuff performed fairly well :D

    in the test I found, it was 1c better than Arctic Silver5 and just as easy to apply .. looks like I'll be trying it out on my next build
