that was superior to others available but at the same time of being highly thermal conductive it would also be even more electrically conductive than the silver embeded compounds out there.
I made one and I need to know if people would want it.
It is similar to the compounds available as it contains silver but gives 2 to three degrees cooler temps and it doesn't dry out.
Mandoralin was going to test it for me but I can't get ahold of him any more.
People with T-birds and exposed bridges would need to be careful. I would probably put a thin layer of rubber cement over the bridges so if some did get on them it wouldn't hurt the chip. This stuff really works great. The main plus is that it doesn't dry out.
I a m getting the same results from Radio Shack 6.5gm @$2.00 as I was from Artic Silver II @ $8.00 @ 3.00gm, the diff is next to " 0 " if you have the right compression. I must have spent $50.00 on this Artic Silver II and havent seen **** in difference. My diff, came from a good pelt and great H2O cooling, just my 2 bits.
Thanks Reef ( John )
Fortunatly I have all that you speak of and I have the same results but as I applied this compound I noticed lower temps by about like I said 2 degrees.
The question was not if it works better but whether you would use a paste that gave the results as I have but without drying out as others can. If you want to argue about whether it works better or not save it for a different thread, that is not the objective of this thread!!!!!
This is true, if it works well, (better than Artic Silver, or Radio Shack (which does not dry out) I am willing to give you my honest opinion and pay for the shipping.
Since stability is a key factor, I probably wouldnt use anything that would put that at risk...or cause me grief of anykind. Half a dozen machines all screwing up at the same time when you need them is something I try to avoid.

Lower temps=better stability, or so I thought. Also you wouldn't have to keep reapplying every month or so. Foxx maybe try it on one machine first for a month or so.
Reeftank I have O.3 mils of it right now that is it. I would only want to send about half that. You might see a bigger difference when using pelts, I am not sure though.
I saw a post stating that AMD is now claiming that thermal paste will liquify if used on a T-bird. I don't know if this is true, it's something you might want to keep an eye on.
I personally would consider using a paste if I knew it was stable. I am using a thermal pad right now because I think the risk of damaging my T-bird by continually removing and replacing my HSF is not worth a few degrees of extra cooling.
I think it just might sell ol'man. The conductivity is risky indeed, but heck, what do you think people were saying about water-cooled systems a few years back?
On a personal level though, I can't really justify it, the regular ol' "white stuff" has worked wonders for me, and never dries out either. And if a 2-3 degree fluctuation in temps is going to make or break your system then either you're clocking too high or you need a better cooling solution. Of course, that's my personal opinion - It seems like Artic Silver is selling like hotcakes, so it might be worth a shot.
