What ever they can get cheapest. I think the kind they use is called mysterious gray goo.

There was a review/guide a while ago testing different methods of TIM application.

They concluded that a small blob in the middle then the weight of the cooler spreading it upon contact was the best method.

If I find the link for it I will post it.

Ive given it a few days now, mainly because I couldnt be bothered with a 4th attempt - my bottom card idle has dropped 7 degrees, and my top card idle has dropped 4 degrees. Bottom load temp dropped about 6 degrees, top load temp dropped about 9 degrees.

With my cpu my idle has dropped around 10 degrees and load around 12 degrees. This is amazing stuff!

I came too the conclusion as someone said earlier, that id have too give it time too spread. I guess the time its taken applied its slowly evened out.

Thanks for your input guys.
