To echo some of the responses you are getting over at techspot I would like to point out that graphite powder is conductive and conductive particles are not good for electronics. If you look at the uses for graphite lubricant they are almost exclusively for mechanical applications. Some capacitors are made out of graphite.

I am sure this can be done safely as you have done it lots with no problems. I just wanted to caution everyone they they should be really carefull with it. If you accidentally dump a tube of graphite on a running mainboard it might just fry it or cause intermitant weirdness.

Just rip all those noisy fans off and go with water cooling!
