Arctic Silver Céramique
« on: July 22, 2003, 03:20:53 PM »
sorta funny that Zeus did a blurb about this on the mainpage, cause at Frag my cpu started to get really toasty (my fault, I put a whimpy heatsink/fan on to make it really quiet), but anyways I had to go pick up some thermal paste at the event and all they had was the Céramique stuff, so I'm giving it a try and so far it seems like its pretty good, don't know if anyone else knows much about it or has tried it

I'm actually using Artic Silver's Alumina - I saw today that it is not very good performing stuff.  I might have to pick up some Ceramique this weekend.

Ouch!  Maybe I'll just go with the cheezy silicon paste.  It actually seemed to do alright.  ;)

yah it hurt to pay 20 bucks for it, but I needed it so I really didn't have much choice, cause I had some serious Gaming to do

Have any of you good folks ever used the PCM - Phase Change Material - known by the name of NANOTHERM?

If not then I highly recommend the material as being one of the best to use between anything that gets hot and a HSF. The price is about $10 for a 2.0 ml tube. When applied it goes a long way after warming up and fills in all the smallest micro pores in the HSF and CPU.

Do a search in GOOGLE for Nanotherm and shop the prices.

I've seen some reviews on nanotherm stuff and it really doesn look like it performs well.  Up here in Canada,  we are a little limited on what we can get locally.  Arctic Silver is one of the few companies that has good retail coverage up here. . .  at least in Western Canada.

I'll keep my eyes open though.  I would be nice to try out and compare personally. . . unless you want to send some up and sponsor a review?  Just kidding.
