Here's the secret about T.I.M. for computers ;It's basically all hype !

There are 10,000x more commercial electronic components with higher heat density than CPU's , and none of them use anything more than commercial heat paste like the MG stuff.There is a reason for that.

Hi Baineater,

I am going to go buy it tomorrow or day after, as there are about 3 stores in Ottawa that carry it. I am trying to read about it more, is non electric conuctive?

I just gave away a once used Gelid Extreme thermal paste not even thinking that it was the only paste I had. I wasn't happy for about 10 minutes considering it did nearly the best in the whole test. Oh well. Time to buy something cheap now. lol
