That IC Diamond is good stuff. I've used it in the past and was happy with it. It's very thick though. I've heard since say it has scratched their CPU hsf and waterblock but I didn't encounter that.

Yea I switched from Arctic Silver 5 to Diamond last year and It is a pain to apply but it does ok if you press the block evenly and firmly then let it get hot for a few days and the paste sets, then the temperatures lower a few C smile.gif

Actually I do have one.

Add a polished billet aluminum cover plate to the front of your desk where the switches and what not are at, with green LED illumination behind. Whatcha think?
