Question isn't whether liquid metal is better, the question is how much better in practice.
Saying that it doesn't work better than high end TIM should requires just as much if not more evidence since you're effectively calling out everybody making these claims.
Post some facts to the contrary of it NOT working significantly better than high end TIM does, or somebody claiming lackluster results from it. Something please...I'm still waiting.
I made the claim that it does work from my experience with multiple GPUs and works better than high end TIM and certainly better than the default TIM from Nvidia! You guys are saying it doesn't make a difference over quality TIM. So prove YOUR point! Otherwise you're the classical "hater". You say "it doesn't make much difference" prove to me that it doesn't otherwise it's just borderline nerd logic. Clearly you'll have to take somebody's word for it at some point or better yet try it yourself.
Moreover, you're assuming that the people that have made claims that it works are all placebo, noobs and or are bull****ting? That's a bit egotistical don't you think.
Here are a bunch more examples on LM on GPUs
on mobile 760-780m GPUs. The 10C claims in this thread are also not valid?
You can scour the net yourself of countless others if you need further data. Unless you can tell me how all these people including myself are wrong, prove them incompetent or that they are just buying into the hype or whatever it is you're trying to suggest please stop making refuting claims.
If nothing else I made my suggestion trying to helps others. What's your assessment of my intention?
I'm willing to say that it will help to the tune of ˜10C at 100% TDP for those that want to tackle it. If you don't see a good improvement you're doing something wrong plain and simple.
YOU are questioning other's claims, the claimed thermal conductivity ratings of the paste vs LM (which has upwards of 7 times greater thermal conductivity rating) all while suggesting that the difference is only 1-3C. How is the burden of proof is on me?
I frankly looks more and more that you are trying to justify to yourself why you're leaving 10C on the table by falsely discouraging others that may want to try it. If it's for the inherent risk factor, personal ability and electrical conductivity reasons associated with LM I get it but otherwise please stop with the unsubstantiated naysay.Edited by KraxKill - 3/14/17 at 2:47pm
