what does it do, squeeze the metal into the microscopic gaps?
i thought about it, and i think that if there is less thermal grease, and pressure pushes it out, then there would be even better heat transfer, right?
so therefore, the thermal interface material would only be doing a fraction of the work, instead of like half of it (theoretical, not actual ammount of work that the thermal grease does, hehe)
because i think that direct metal contact would be better than having some grease in between the metal and the core.
i mean, the grease can help fill in the gaps, but with minimal grease, wouldnt it work better?
