Worst possible substance to use as TIM? - Page 44  

post #431 of 537
Depends on what you want worst to mean. Worst for heat performance...silica aerogel. Your cpu will be exploding and no heat will be going to the heatsink. Worst for destruction....some liquid explosive that's heat sensitive. Worst for cost....T-Rex semen?

I'd have to say using Anthrax would suck. You'd not only have a hot cpu, you and everyone in the neighborhood would be dead

Since it is mostly space, there aren't many molecule to transfer heat.

This wins IMO
