As I've mentioned in my last post: Nobody is saying it doesn't work better. At least I'm not saying that.
When I accuse other people of inflating their overclocks, I know how it feels. I was tempted to do the exact same thing. This is why I set up a standardized testing methodology and verification process.
I don't think my assessment of your intention matters. If I think you intended to lie and deceive others I would've come out and said it. It's actually possible for people to be wrong and have good intentions. It's also possible for somebody to be right but go about proving it in a bad way. It's also possible for egos to get in the way of a good discussion.
Again: 10C on what? Doing what? We may not be professional scientists but let's act like we are. I think we'll all be better for it.
As I said: First and foremost I want to be sure it's safe. Then I can test it.
Point taken, and Apologies for lumping your post in. It made for a lot of lost context. I should have addressed your posts individually.
I agree. I would love for you or somebody else to as you say conduct "a standardized testing methodology and verification process.". I'm not about to conduct one on LM. I have no qualms about the fact that I present anecdotal evidence on the merits of LM on GPU specific applications based on the reports of limited number of others and myself. If you can point me to some evidence I am as you are all ears. But to be fair as with threads prior, this one is about to get filled with unstandardized overclock claims, misunderstood sustained boost vs momentary clocks context and more. These will all be online claims and opinions. I took online claims and reports of LM effectiveness on this very forum among others as reason enough for me to try it. Not being priced outrageously out of reach I did. First with great results on my 4790K then on my GPU and consequent GPUs from there on out.
Report back if you do...I sure don't want to waste any more time applying the stuff if it's no more than 1-3C better than standard TIM (which has frankly felt all the same to me for as long as I can remember). One thing I do know for a fact, is this stuff is not exactly a breeze to work with. It's liquid, a trick to spread, is electrically conductive and all that goes with that.
