Nope, it doesn't. TX-3 has a thermal conductivity of 6.2 W/mK whilst IC Diamond (7 actually refers to the size of the tube, 7 carats of diamonds. hence, there's also an IC 24.) has a conductivity of about 4.5 W/mK
the thing is IC7/24 is also non conductive and non capacitive. you got a link for TX3?

Yes it does make a great storage drive. I could tell a huge difference going from my of WD250 SATAII 8mb to this one. It's so much faster. the BLACK Drives have TWO processors in them I guess... Compared to this Drive having only one. But still, I would get a Black if I were using it for a Main Drive.

Here's the company description page. I got it because it was said to be best for heatpipe direct touch type coolers.

That is a liquid nitrogen pot. It allows you to achieve temps ranging from -150c to -250c. Yes, that's negative 150 - 250c.

Allows for a little bit more performance from the rig.

I think I am going to have to get some. But I will NOT be using the method of application they stated!

Where can I find more info on this subject and how to handle liquid nitrogen for this purpose?

You may pretty much have to, this stuff is thick as treacle, and just as hard to spread about. You can't just put on a peasized drop like with AS5. you have to spread this stuff on a little bit thick. It's designed not to ooze out under pressure, so go ahead and put it on like they tell you to.
