Can somone do an experiment for me? (thermal paste) (honey + graphite + heat) - Page 4

post #31 of 81
I used regular heatsink silicone paste, I can't remember the name of the brand, as I discarded the original tube, though I do know it was made in the UK, so should narrow it down some if you want to look after it biggrin.gif
About the pencil, I'm not entirely sure either, but I think it was #2, its those yellow pencils you use in first years of school tongue.gif

pencil lead has a lot of clay in it, I'd suggest using some graphite lubricant instead.

You'll create gaps (holes) within the crystal latice that might actually improve heat transfer.

The OP tried it on the stove. I personally would never try it, as graphite is highly conductive.

We also use silver is pastes, which is highly conductive. As long as the substance is controlled, he shouldn't have an issue.

Yes, But at the price of $40 for 5grams, you'd be better off spending money on aftermarket TIM instead of DIY,
