I would like to request a professional grade thermal paste called "GC Electronics Silicone (Z9)" I only use this paste after getting a 10 degree drop compared to Arctic Silver. I would like to see how it compares to the other typical consumer ones. It's very cheap so no worries about purchasing it. Here is a link: http://www.altex.com/GC-Silicone-Z9-...9-P139903.aspx

Ok, while these are all great thermal pastes. I had an idea while at work. It struck me while thinking about the bad food concepts. ( no offense guys, and girls ) I know its interestiong to think about, but in real world situation, REALLY? I mean really. Would you?

So anyhow, my idea was to use a bearing grease. Blue, high thermal property bearing grease. It has 300+ degree temp limit. You wont get that in a cpu. It wont fall apart, it wont bubble, and would be pretty easy to apply.

Let me know what you think?

^And for the post above. If you read the OP, this test is going to take over a month to finish. Hes finishing his finals so he can take his BAR exam, plus hes going to do 3-4 reapplies as well as test every TIM. The results might not be up till June. FYI.

( Whats up with the double post? I hit edit and it posted a second time? Admin, you can erase the post. Thank you.)

Actually my buddy used some bearing grease (or the like) on his cpu. He doesn't really monitor temps, or OC but the fan barely kicks up like it used to.

Im just gonna say it again, Akasa's thermal paste, like;

http://www.xsreviews.co.uk/reviews/m...grade-ak-460/5
http://www.doomedpc.com/?q=node/120
http://www.modsynergy.com/review32.htm (ok TIM-pads but you get the picture)

Akasa site, Akasa mail sales@akasa.co

I didnt even know they were making TIM's untill I ordered my new cooler a couple of weeks ago, the shop ran out of Arctic Silver so I decided to go for Akaka's thermal paste. It owns. It should be in the test.

In regards to the MX-2, I believe he said that he contacted company, got no response, and is contacting them again.

In regards to the grease idea... wow, forgot all about those. Step-dad used to have a bit laying around for one of his jobs I believe. Can't remember what he used it for, but I do remember the garage smelling like grease monkey.

I'm sure he's going to see your previous post. Give him time. He's quite possibly very busy now.

Thread Starter 
I'm sorry for the lack of updates...

Testing is still taking place. The last 2-3 weeks have been particularly hectic for me.

Work, Graduating from Law School, starting to prepare for the bar exam, as well as some personal and family issues have made it somewhat difficult to routinely update this thread.

I am only going to be working for another week before taking off time to truly prep for the Bar... and testing will be my "release" from the rigors of studying... so expect the updates to come in much faster in the near future.

Also, I have talked to Dave from TIM Consultants and I believe he is going to further provide me with some "prototype" materials. Should be interesting.

Thanks for understanding everyone.
Go Green!
