    Thanks for doing this review! We didn't have the guts to risk some CPUs on such a test. I think your application techniques looked reasonable and typical of what most users would probably do, I've also forgotten the sandpaper and I recommended it! Needless to say, I'm disappointed with your results and we'll have to revisit this. Also, I'd not recommend that your viewers use a permanent adhesive in place of a removable grease when possible as you separated these two surfaces with LESS damage than is usual! Thanks again and well keep in touch.

      It is Many years in the past - i had an Geforce 2 with some Temperature Problems. After many tests i figured out that the Thermal Compound Factory used was total garbage - so i cracked down the cooler and cleaned cooler and GPU (and the ram chips) i got my self a better cooler (complete passive) and glued the new cooler and the ram coolers back on the chips with a mixture of Silver Paste and Pattex Powerglue (i simply mixed them on an on CD case like linus did XD ) Before the active cooler could not stand the heat output of the card - but after my modification the former active cooled card would have run complete passive cooled with nearly 20° less than before even under the heaviest load i could run it. I had used more Silver Paste than Power Glue - because all i want from the glue was to hold the cooler (that did not fit to the factory mounting points) to hold in place. I called the Card alter my Little Frankenstein Card :D Many years later now i do it when ever i upgrade my system or a GPU cooler is on the edge of cracking because of Age ^^ - search for a passive cooling element that might fit size of the card and glue it on the GPU with hig performance paste and a little bit of power glue (today i have 5 or 6 of these Little Frankenstein cards that are stil working)

    Funny thing about FX processors is that I had FX 8350 Black Edition and while I was playing Assassins Creed games or some other demanding games back in the day, I was running with no OC around 70C... the moment I OCed it even a little bit, stock cooler was not capable to cool it down and it was unstable and termalthrottled down alot... but when I got new CPU cooler, I was running 93C Average all core boost to my max stable OC which was awesome... then I upgraded my GPU Radeon R7 to R9 (I dont remember the exact models) and then I had thermal issues with my GPU running at 90C aswell cuz R9 was apparently also one hell of a GPU (the hell is for heat not for performance) and its one small million fins fan was not capable to drag air trough so what I did to cool it down during summer was puting it in a closet, drilling a hole in it, putting two 2L bottles full of frozen water next to the hole and put an external fan at the hole so the fan was dragging cool air into the small closet with PC in it, PC had no side panels and exhaust for hot air was a gap infront of the closet where I had doors for the closet and it was working perfectly like that for many years before I decided to go intel and nvidia and got GTX 1060 and i5 8600K... xD

    EDIT: Holly cow I miss understood where this was going. Let's just put all the heat conductive materials in an epoxy and see what happened TBH I'm curious. Original "Yes there are a couple things more heat conductive than silver but not many! All are arrangements of carbon (diamond, grapen etc) and the wild card (which still contains carbon) silicone carbide and theoretically several other carbides".

Has 4 times the thermal condicutivity of any other paste on the consumer market at 30W/mK, has higher dielectric voltage and significantly higher thermal breakdown. Long time fanbro.

    I would have liked to see it done again but with someone who would take the time to try and apply it perfectly without sliding and moving it all around. I don't know if it would have improved the performance, but because i have always seen people apply paste as if accuracy with application was super important, im curious if the results would be different.
