I was watching a few videos from AMDs website about installing an Athlon processor, and I noticed that they used ****Etsu thermal grease... they also said that you shouldn't use it in a production environment.
It really struck me, because if Arctic Silver is probably the most popular and well-known thermal compound out, why not use it in the video and show system builders that Arctic Silver is better than a pad.
And now, hearing this... well... What the hell are they playing at?
