    May be a few days for Andrew to log in and confirm to everyone, he had to have a very minor surgery this week and is recovering quietly at home. I forgot all about this. He should be in before the week is through. Thanks and sorry for the delay, however everyone will get their ICD24. :rockout:


    To all TPU members that qualify!!!!

    All moderators and news posters are also welcome to this give away! :toast:


    Also when emailing your intent to test, please include that your in the TechPowerUp test! Don't forget to include that your a member here at TPU!


    I recently became a representative for Innovation Cooling (IC Diamond 7 manufacture) and have been authorized to present to the awesome members of TechPowerUp! an opportunity to enjoy a free (including shipping) tube of IC Diamond's newest Thermal Interface Material; IC Diamond 24!!!!!

    Below you will see the quoted message from Andrew, the CEO for Innovation Cooling, on how to obtain your free tube of IC Diamond 24. Andrew, by the way is a great person to talk to and will be joining in on this thread very soon. Most likely later tonight or tomorrow sometime.

    I will be contacting Andrew as soon as I have this posted in order for him to join in on the fun!

    Folks, I was actually in on the testing of IC Diamond 7 when it was just being released, and it was a hoot! So don't delay, as there is only 100 tubes available to TechPowerUp! forum members, and have a great time doing what we all love to do anyhow. :toast::toast::toast:




    Until Andrew logs in and responds to this thread, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me via PM's. Try to keep questions, for the time being, to PM's so that this thread does not become flooded with such items.

    Have fun guys and gals, and we will see you on the testing grounds. :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    Guys, when you post your original message of "ON MY HONOR IN EXCHANGE FOR FREE COMPOUND I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR TO TEST AND POST MY RESULTS"


    Please edit your thread once you have run your current tests with your existing TIM. Don't post a new message as it will make the thread very cluttered.

    Thanks again everyone of participating in this awesome give away. :toast:

    ON MY HONOR IN EXCHANGE FOR FREE COMPOUND I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR TO TEST AND POST MY RESULTS :pimp:

    Using the system in my sig:

    Intel i7 3930K
    Asus P9X79 Pro
    4 x 8GB Corsair Dominator GT
    Triple 7970's (stock coolers)
    Triple Asus VW246H LCD's
    2 x 120 GB Corsair Force 3 (Raid 0)
    500GB WD
    Lite-On BluRay
    Nickel-plated Heatkiller 3.0 CU
    D5 with EK X-top
    BIX Quad Rad w/ six Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans on the rad at full speed (4 on one side, 2 on the other to fit around the PSU, which also pulls air through the rad)
    BIX 120mm rad w/ one Yate Loon medium speed fan at full speed
    Corsair AX1200
    Silverstone TJ07

    Using MX-4 thermal paste at the moment. Temps below were after a 5-pass run of Intel Burn Test.

    [​IMG]

    Ambient temps were 21.3C (measured with my laser thermometer at a random, non-heat-producing item in the room). Loop temps were about 24C, measured at the res.

    Let me know if I missed something...

    Oh crap, I put Diamond 7 in my email LOL. Just sent a follow up email correcting myself.

    WHERE'S MY FREE PASTE? I have an overheating laptop that's on MX-2 and a copper shim, but that hasn't helped much. Maybe ICD24 can change that!

    Thanks sting for the link. I'll definitely join in on this. I'm constantly swaping out coolers be it cpu or gpu. I always update the tim. Even when trying out diff cpu coolers to find which does the best job cooling for that paticular cpu. I can list everything I have running but my main ones running are in my sig. I'll be keeping my eye on this one.

    o yea "ON MY HONOR IN EXCHANGE FOR FREE COMPOUND I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR TO TEST AND POST MY RESULTS". I actually planned to do a few cpu cooler switching around and this would come in handy.

    **edited and reserved, I made some changes like lapping my processor, and it doesn't make much sense to test days apart anyway as ambients can change.**

    If it was on the testing from the beginning of the ICD7 tests, I am sure Andrew will throw in an extra tube of ICD7 for ya man. Once he logs in on this thread, shoot him a PM regarding that.



    Got to turn in for the evening, as it will be an early morning for me. I will answer any PM's before I have to leave in the morning.

    Thanks to all that have joined in so far.......This should be a lot of "cool" fun.........Pun intended. :laugh::laugh::laugh:
