    My only concern would be pushing the retail price too high as I think most could be done with a couple of tests although I could test market something like 6 X 9 sheet or 8.5 X 11? Maybe nice to have around when you need it but then you are talking $10's of and not spare change

    for most coolers i feel 2-3 sheets would be all thats neccessary in my situations only two would be needed first to test pressure second to test a correction its not rocket science most coolers tend to have 1-4 parts to tighten knowning to loosen 1 tighten another to gain better overall pressure would be enough i feel.

    If you're talking one 2"x2" square of contact paper for $3, I don't think $9 for a three-pack would be out of the question. I feel one would be a test to see how it looks, then another if you need to change something, and a third just in case. And if it works fine the second time, you have a spare to mess around with if you want to play around with something in the future.

    Now, if I misunderstood you and it's actually three pieces for $3, then that would be awesome. A ten-pack would be only beneficial to the card-core people out there with multiple rigs and to hardware reviewers.

    Please send me a sample and I will gladly participate. I have a HD7950 and i5-3570k that I currently run on a water cooling loop. I use IC Diamond right now and would like to try the new formula.

    That would be the right size pack @ the right price. As ski also noted a multi pak for multiple rigs and to hardware reviewers would fit right in to a marketing program.

    If you have any left I think I can test now since I need to install a different cooler on the I7-920 for crunching. If not its ok I am glad you got to do this for the community.

    Plenty of samples still available.


    I found a retailer that will do some test marketing on the C/P paper So I will send them 50 test kits next week. My intent here is to turn it over to them so I won't make any money off of it.

    I do have a motivation of raising the bar here on internet testing in general and end user performance improvement , the reviewer in post 98 while he had a 3 C improvement in IC Diamond over AS5 at the end of the exercise his total improvement was 5C with the total lapping exercise which is fairly typical when using this paper combined with lapping. another on the OCUK giveaway one end user had a 7C improvement on his TR sink on the overall.

    Maybe TechPowerup could be the first to review the new Product........?

    Got the paste in today. Looks to be about the same as MX-2, but it looked like the paste was much thicker than MX-2, so I'll wait about a week or so and give it some curing time, give it some time to spread out all nice and even...

    It would be nice to know who was on the list to be sent the paste to test. I have not received mine as of yet.

    Any more tubes left? I have a system that hasn't had the cpu thermal paste changed since the first time I installed it (e7400+p5ql-se) so I wouldn't mind seeing how well this paste goes against the stock intel :)

    If there is any left I wouldn't mind a tube :D

    And to apply this put a 5.0-5.5 mm bead and then let the cooler do the spreading?
