    Arctic Silver 4. I hope that conducts even better then 3. Wonder what my temperatures will be with that one. I'l loove to see a temperature comparison of two CPUs; one with AS3, and the other with AS4.

    Probably won't be much of a differnece there; but if there was that would be really cool!

    "Gareth,

    Céramique, by Arctic Silver®
    High Density Thermal Gel.

    Nothing in print yet. The application is not as critical as AS3, so you do not need to spend a lot of time getting a perfect layer. It is VERY thick and sticky so be careful removing the heatsink later that you do not pull the chip from the socket."



    And thats all i have to go on. :confused:

    so far i have not tried it. probably this weekend...

    Still no takers to review this ?

    If I were near you, I would test it out. Sounds quite different from AS3. Thick and sticky eh? I am curious to try it though and will be looking for it to release.
