Err... I have to question their testing methods.

I highly doubt that most people will see a 20C difference in load temps just by using a diamond based thermal compound...

If this turns out to be the real deal though... count me in. I'd spend some extra cash to drop my temps 10-20C.

I'm also calling shenanigans - you may improve your temps a little bit, but not over 10C.

Interesting idea though.

Meh...no screenshots or anything of the temps...i call BS.

Although in theory it would work but i doubt the temps would be reduced so dramatically.
