And when you do as many builds and re-mounts or new cooler swaps you tend to find the ones that are as friendly to that as possible.
After all, I'd hate to be reapplying and removing a lot of the crap compunds out there.
And some do actually make a good difference.
so true. but with most half decent compounds their thermal conductivities are relatively close, so yeah I guess it comes down to ease of application and removal as well as electrical and capacitive properties.
For example, I was looking at IC7 diamond paste, but they want 50psi or more applied. And some of the liquid metal products leave a residue that cannot be removed or spill some on your board and you're in trouble.
