I just found that by using the thin layer application method I dropped another 1c-2c off my max temps =) just a heads up but you have to make sure you warm the goo first or it doesnt work.

Even though IC makes a point of shooting down that method of application? Perhaps it has something to do with you using a HDT cooler while on IC's site they did not.

I must admit that I am tempted to buy some and play with it more. :P

Yeah I think it is the HDT that makes the difference, their methods just dont really work that well with the HDT and I find with the thin layer I get a much better imprint then with the xs or lines.

Your welcome. I noticed that the cpu temps have dropped a degree or so in the last day or so ( I cycled the box on and off a few times to help seat the IC7) and it's now sitting right where it was with the AS5.

Hey all..I know it's been a bit quiet around here lately, but just to touch base, ICD7 (Andrew) has just been away for a bit. He will be back shortly and I'm sure he'll be posting up the current data set. There's still more results to be submitted so we should be seeing some more posts upcoming. Thanks to all that have submitted so far, your data is much appreciated.
