was it sick ?
curing: the process of becoming hard or solid by cooling or drying or crystallization

That's science, hard to say no to that.
I definitely want to try this. If it works my temps would be rediculous.
Ahhhh... that would be the incorrect use of science. Double thermal conductivity DOES NOT double system performance.
Copper Thermal Conductivity: 400 W/(m K)
Aluminium Thermal Conductivity: 235 W/(m K)
A copper TRUE does not lower temperatures by 41% over an aluminum/copper TRUE. The performance gain in that case is less than 1% (considering the temperature scale starts at −273.15Â°C)Edited by DuckieHo - 8/5/09 at 10:50am
