    Thermal Paste Test (and cheese!)

    [H]ardOCP has a test on thermal pastes. Looks as if there's not a lot to choose between them - even the cheese would do for a cool CPU!

    LOL at the cheese.

    I think this article proved that anything can be used as a thermal paste as long as you dont overclock.

    Yeah but alot of the oil is removed in the curing process, try putting a slice of cheese on a plate, and a blob of mayo next to it, the mayo will change consistency over a few days whereas the cheese will remain constant, and that is without heat cycles...

    The 'binding' structure of the cheese is 'tighter' than the mayo, hence why the mayo is, for all intents and purposes, a liquid and cheese is a solid at room temperature.

    !!?why am i talking about cheese and mayo on a tech forum?!!

    Well, not entirely! It is all about physics and thermodynamics! Oil is a good trnsfer medium - specialist oils are used for cooling in large electrical installations, although it is more akin to water cooling - but you could immerse the whole of a PC in oil (but not mayonnaise!!!) to cool it (and I think some people have). The problem as a heat sink 'paste' is that it would run off in time (as someone said) and dry out!

    However the initial post just shows the hype that surround heat sink paste - the common or garden stuff performs pretty much as well as "Super duper, silver loaded, gaming recommended, packaged in gold lame adorned paper" sold at 5 times the price. (Sorry - ten times - it had 'gaming' in the title)!

    Re: Thermal Paste Test (and cheese!)

    Do different cheeses have different thermal properties?
    Maybe we should have our own review with different types of cheese. i.e red lester, danish blue etc.
    Will have a go with some cheese spread later and report back

    Cheese aint oil based... it's curdled milk, at least real cheese is. Dunno about hideousness like Primula or Dairylea though, although they can't be far off.
