    Mayo? I prefer Ranch, but unfortunately computer components never taste very good no matter what toppings I try. :(

    How long would it last?

    Probably have to replace it often I take it?

    would work... anything oil based, or remotely liquid works... the question is - for how long?

    AC5 thinned with mineral oil actually has the best interface, but after a short while the oil runs out, and it starts to suck. Same for mayo, the oil will eventually separate from the eggs and seasonings and you will be lift with salmonella surprise.

    Mayo = eggs + vegetable oil. So the egg will slowly cook, and the oil will just drip down into your socket. Good idea!

    AFAIK the only (tested) non-thermal compound that works just as effectively is Dielectric Silicone.

    mayonaise ffs. :D

    it would be easier to simply solder the cpu to the heatsink than keep reapplying it... has anyone ever actually managed to do that?

    Yes, I thought of this when I read the OP the 1st time. I don't think it would be very practical though xD
