Default Re: Best Thermal Gel/Heatsink Compound

Better then AS-5? Try the Innovation Cooling (IC) Diamond 7-Carat Thermal Compound (uses diamonds since they offer the highest thermal conductivity of basically anything. Much more so then silver or copper).

Oh, and how about some proof:

"It seems that there is definitely a more than viable alternative to Arctic Silver 5 on the market place now. While the results weren't jaw dropping they certainly were impressive and warrant your attention. Five degrees Fahrenheit is a respectable drop and we weren't the only ones to attain that..."

I'm using the IC Diamond 7-Carat Thermal Compound my self, and it works as promised.
