    Akasa announced its newest high-performance thermal interface material (TIM) for application in high-end PC cooling setups, for components such as CPUs and GPUs. The AK-450-SS from Akasa is a silver-based compound that offers thermal conductivity as high as 9.24 W/(m·°C). The company did not give out viscosity information, but mentioned that it can handle temperatures as high as 200 °C, without "bleeding" out. The compound is also engineered to leave minimal staining when removed. In Japan, it will be sold in 1.5 g syringes, starting August 7th.

    If it doesn't spread like butter i don't want to know about it. Last thing i need is a thermal paste that I need a rolling pin to spread and a pneumatic drill to get off
