Silver/Diamond waterblock? - Page 2

^ yeah sorry ....I meant the silver block would offer more performance/$ than a diamond block not a copper one.

Okay, now that makes perfect sense XD

Now if they could manage to make a graphene composite material and alien the nano-particles in a liquid suspension before the composite material cured, then THAT would offer unholy price/performance. eek.gif

Nah Boron arsenide is the way to go.....at least theoretically

I'm hesitant to believe that article, mainly because it claims diamond is the current best thermal conductor, and that graphene has a thermal conductivity close to diamond, both of which are false.

I wonder what the cost is for boron arsenide though. You can get graphene nanopowder from a consumer end fairly cheap.

I think its only theoretically based anyway so.....not really of any relevance...at least at this point in time
