This thread is older than iPhone. Think about that.

Yeah, see what happens is someone googles "alternative to thermal paste" or something like that then they come across this thread and don't realize when it's from, they just see info related to their quire. Not a big deal IMO but anyone posting in this thread is long gone and will never see what they've said.

not sure why is such a hot topic warranting a grave digging, but mustard, butter, and chocolate work as thermal paste too if you lower your standards enough.



the selling points of thermal paste are the ability to withstand hundreds of hot/cold cycles without breaking down. if you just need something to test if something works ... fine, but that's not a thermal paste alternative.

So earlier this week someone brought this thread to my attention, anyone try using silver or copper leaf?

https://forums.extremeoverclocking.c...d.php?t=149780

With standard mounting pressure I would assume only the edges would oxidize/tarnish over time, but also idk if one should worry about any cold welding or air gaps. I wonder if one could use leaf on only some parts of the IHS to target specific areas for better contact pressure.

Filling in low areas so to speak instead of re-leveling the surface by lapping.
