Interesting. What if you make the paste version drying process with Cinebench loop? I mean why not to dry assembled with running operating temps? It will run below the suggested 100 Celsius, because every chip is limited to that value. Also the pad version needs settling time, I suppose that the paste version takes even longer to settle. The first hours will be the drying and whet it dries it will start to settle like the pad version. The only concern is that you apply compression before the drying process, it can pumpout like normal pastes so you shot yourself in the foot. It will work or not?
I have no idea...
So, it is not just the solvent.Worth a shot if you have this paste. Maybe it can be done with half tightened cooler and after the Cinebench loops you can tighten the screws totally. But yeah, this will be a mess of result probably. Better to make the steps properly as in the description, aka leave the paste on the chip for a day (covered with a paper U turn to shield from dust particles) and then assembly the system and it will work as the pad version. So probably the 7950 SP version not worth it for home usage if the pad version exists and ready to run, but the 7958 SP is an improved version with slightly less thermal impedance so you can further gain a little extra thermal performance with it if you apply it correcty, I can wait 1 day for 2-3C better performance, it can make a difference when the CPU throttles or not.
BTW, Halnziye also has a PCM paste
