    This is a headline, and it may concern some users here


    Basically this test at overclockers.com revealed that there was no silver in OCZ Ultra 2 Thermal Paste. Just thought I'd let you folks know.

    Would have been even nicer if they said what the performance impact was. Other very effective "filling" compounds can be used besides silver, like berylia.

    O\It's a pain in the butt to pull your HSF, clean everything up and re-install if there is no performance issue.
