Seven Carat Diamond Thermal compound

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Someone sent me a
Seven Carat Diamond Extreeme Performance Thermal Compound IC
Contains 92% diamond

Now I tried that on my brother cpu 720 phonem, and comparing it to the Artic 5 thermal compound this is A LOT more thicker. Is that normal? is it a good thermal compound?

IC7 is considered one of the best thermal compounds out there.

Yes, its lot thicker than AS5, suggesting next time before squezzing it out, put the tube into a sealed small plastic bag and dip it into warm (not scorching hot) water for few minutes, it will soften it significantly.

Its relatively better than AS5.

If it is, thats like the second/third best thermal paste you can buy.

wow thanks to that guy then. So do I need a lot of it? or is there something I need to do before I use it? like what Bing mentioned, melting it?

Actually that warming up process is recommended by that TIM founder him self (Joe Citarella), he was suggesting to leave the tube into your shirt's pocket for a while to heat it using body heat, but I discovered dipping into warm water is better.
