This can be done in the kitchen: put on a pot of water... when it's boiling try to sprinkle some powder on/in it... observe what happens (or rather not happens) smile.gif

As long as you dont do this on an open stove, it is "safe" , nothing spectacular should happen, you only risk burning your hands when being to enthousiastic - wear gloves !

I'm a bit sad, this sounded like some great experiment.

Somehow, it feel that trying it with copper shavings might be easier smile.gifsmile.gif

the plan:

Bench on am3+ (which needs fastest possible and I have a mobo for already) attempt highest freq possible or close.

with the same setup in the same session attempt with copper shavings, starting with few and ending with lots. nothing really complicated.

If results with copper are positive get tons of graphene and find adequate delivery mechanism(pellets,empty pot-full pot,etc) and temperature depending on experience with copper.

Ouch sorry for hijacking thread I just realized this is getting a little off topic, making one when I get materials and time ^^

Unless I'm misunderstanding something it sounds like you're over complicating it. Couldn't you just put in the graphene nanopowder PRIOR to putting the LN2 in the bench pot? That would avoid any issues with it not sinking. I'm fairly certain graphene is more dense than LN2, so it /shouldn't/ float to the top if it's already at the bottom.

its an option...

however, powder being powder and LN being LN ... as soon as you start pouring LN, it'll start to boil when it hits the bottom it'll "blow" powder around. It might actually blow more powder around that way as when you try to add powder to the already boiling LN

Its something to test smile.gif

either way, me, i would not feel comfortable breathing in large concentrations of graphene powder redface.gif

There is one place i found that sells a graphene thermal paste for cpu or gpu cooling, the website is www.thermene.com and also in their website on the bottom part of there page it says that there is another website selling a similar product that is not as good as theirs from a website called www.graphene.ws.smile.gif

As tempted as I am to post a rather humorous necro meme, that's actually some pretty good info. Anyone want to be the guinea pig and test it?

Not me, because this:

Thats quite average IMO, all my high end pastes I have at home do much beter than 3C < AS5..

Hmmm, maybe curious to see how it behaves under cold anyways <.< lol
