    Interesting, i am open to trying new goo, when i get around to installing blocks on my TR and GFX card in a few months.

    Re: EVGA launches Frostbite 2 Thermal Grease

    On the EVGA website it say this product has a thermal conductivity of 1.6 Watts per metre Kelvin.

    Compare this to say Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut which has a thermal conductivity of 12.5 W/mK

    So not much of a comparison to the best on the market?

    Pity they didn't send you a few tubes to do some tests on.

    Now there's an idea eh? A thermal paste shoot-out...after all it's something we all use at some point.

    There's maybe a couple of degrees between high end and mediocre brands of TIM.

    Re: EVGA launches Frostbite 2 Thermal Grease

    Thats my understanding too.
    Maybe that's due to the after all little surface area of a CPU ?

    Have you done some independent testing?
    The point i'm trying to make is that no-one really knows - Until proper testing is done on them.

    Re: EVGA launches Frostbite 2 Thermal Grease

    EVGA provided a comparison chart of sorts intended to illustrate the superiority of its next gen compound but it isn't very worthwhile as it doesn't name the competitors or compare against its own first generation compound (chart embedded below).
    Not to mention the chart starts at 59.5... so there's almost no difference between them.

    No-one really knows?

    Just google thermal paste benchmarks.

    Re: EVGA launches Frostbite 2 Thermal Grease

    This has been tested extensively. Just like most computery things. As above, the difference is really quite small for most users and only really an issue at the very high end where few of us live.

    There are a pooload of such TIM tests online, a bit much asking one person to do.

    The small surface area makes TIM more important - the heat flux (W/m^2) is the key number, in the same way that the current carried by a cable determines how low a resistance you need to control resistive losses. Thermal conduction follows exactly the same equations as electrical conduction - difference in temperature is equivalent to difference in voltage, heat is equivalent to charge, and substitute thermal resistance for electrical resistance.
