Arctic Cooling = MX-2 right?

If yes... then they have already been contacted. No response yet though.

Thank you for pointing out what I've had to repeat ad-litem. It's just tough to search for all the different contact info.

Thanks everyone for the interest... you all played a part in motivating me.

And like I said... I stand behind my promise... all the donated paste will be going Freebie once the testing is done. (I might keep one for my time/effort... but needless to say... there should be some good freebies shortly)
Go Green!

Hey, another cool thing to test while you have all these pastes is their conductivity, but would a standard multimeter be precise enough to detect trace values?

I doubt a standard multimeter would be accurate enough to test conductivity with. Then again... I don't own a standard multimeter... so that in and of itself would make the point moot. =P

Still no updates from the other companies. I might send out 1 more e-mail to the companies that have not replied... indicate that other companies have responded positively and that their absence from the test will be noted in the results.

Woot!!
Noctua has amazing customer service. This just proves it, yet again

As has already been stated, use the CL Liquid Pro LAST! It is literally liquid metal and can be very dangerous if used improperly, as it is highly electrically conductive and also reacts badly with certain metals. Honestly, I would never use the stuff personally, despite the drop in temps.
Good luck with your testing. Thanks for doing this also

LOL. Definitely mention about other companies participating and they're not. Never know, it may hurt them in the long run of things.

The more I hear about this "paste" the more and more worried I am. I don't want to have to bust out sandpaper just to remove the stuff. I may simply not test it. Everyone here has me worried now. =\\

We'll see I guess.
