    The company got some attention when the released their 100% metal based thermal paste. Now they have introduced the "MetalPad", which consists of the same kind of metal, but can be applied without the use of a syringe. The pads should be available world wide by the end of October. It will come in different packages for GPUs or CPUs. A single pad is priced at around 4 to 5€.

    i'd love to read a review on one of these and have it actually compared with the good ol' AS5 or ceramique...

    could just be the next big thing in TIM's...

    but for the time being, yeah i too am sticking with my AS5.

    Wouldn't a 100% metal based paste conduct electricity?I mean what if it leaks and touches two nearby components?

    Coollaboratory MetalPad

    This german site gives a review and the performance figures ( if accurate) look better than anything else on the market. Look for coollaboratory metal pad under reviews
