    Finally decided to have a go at unlocking my xp 2100 using the joining L1 bridges and pin mod method. My question is can I use arctic silver 3 thermal compound as a conductive agent to join the bridges after filling the pits with a non conductive agent such as crayon (heard it works ok!)

    Use common sense... lay a strip down on something. Let it dry. Use an continuity tester to see if you get continuity and also check resistance. If there is continuity and little resistance, then SURE!

    Just checked the arctic silver website, turns out its a no go. Its only conductive under extreme pressure.

    Use rear window defogger repair kit from any half decent auto shop, it conducts well.
