    I would appreciate being added to the pool here. As far as feedback, anything in specific you're looking for? I'm assuming since all fancy testing/benchmarking can be done in a lab, you're looking for general user experience?

    At least the healthcare is free after they beat you up. :p

    Im just looking for your experience as I outlined...

    is it easy to use.... does it work better than peanut butter....

    you tell me... represent it how you see fit...


    btw all joking aside I have tried many things as thermal paste (Primarily spurred by sheer curiosity) and even fruit roll up will work as a thermal material although it was more of an insulator as bare heatsink cooled better but it still allowed enough thermal transfer to run full stress tests.

    I hope you dont think im strange for testing this...

    oh and the fruit roll up tasted horrible after cooking at over 50C

    Hey shannon, I will try it out. I can send you an email on it if you want.

    Hey, I've tested many, many things.
    Mayo, mustard, ketchup, toothpaste, hair gel, Vaseline, a thin slice of balogna, peanut butter and jelly(not at the same time, though), barbecue sauce, tartar sauce... the list goes on.
    Basically one day I decided to try a bunch of odd things as TIM, purely out of curiosity(and boredom). Ended up opening the fridge and saying "this might work. Oh, and this. Definitely gonna try this!" until my arms were full, lol.
    Surprisingly, mayo works pretty well... for about three hours :laugh:
    Ok, scratch that. You're strange.:wtf:
    :roll:
    What did it taste like?

    I might be new here but I am up for a try if you are able to ship it globally :D

    Had used your product, TG-1. It was pretty decent and far easier to apply than Shinetsu's.

    Is this really non conductive ? Because TG-1 has "low electrical conductivity" and I am not sure I want to apply this on VRAM chip as a thermalpad replacement.

    I'm about to rebuild my loop and would like to test a tube of this against my normal favourites. Is this offer USA only??

    From the testing I've seen it's worse than no heatsink. You could try chilling it and pumping it through a loop but the PSI would just heat it back up again.

    this paste is not thick enough for what i would consider usage for thermal pad replacement.

    Thermal pads are made to be decent at transferring heat while filling a sizable gap... thermal paste is made for tight clearance fitment between two surfaces which will only seep into the most minute areas to enhance the contact patch...

    I would not recommend this for that application.

    :rockout: I actually did a review for a hardware site waaaaaay back then on that exact cooler just before its official release. Did the review on an Asus A7V133 motherboard sporting a kicka$$ xp1600+.
    For its time it was a seriously impressive cooling solution! But as you mentioned, it was insanely heavy! Oh and crazy loud at at the full 7000 RPM! Ear bleeding loud. :laugh:

    I remember reading a thread long while back about a guy who tested all sorts of household things like peanut butter, toothpaste, petroleum jelly, and the list went on. Was that you?

    I wouldn't mind testing it out. Hope it can do something for my 3570k.

    This sounds like fun, I have a couple different pastes i wouldn't mind comparing it with. Sign me up for a tube.

    wanted to add that I currently use mx-2 and Arctic ceremique so testing this new Tt TIM on my liquid cooled system running World Community Grid at 100% would give a good stress test.

    Also Shannon, what is the average cure time on this or is it even known yet?

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I was afraid it would rip the socket off the board. LOL That probably would have never happened, but I was scared as hell back then it would. Maybe I should test it out. I have a A7vpro board I can use with it. hmmmm.


    Oh Tt Im in for testing. :toast:
