The Pen is mightier than the Sword, but the Sword is better if you need back up.

I've read that before sounds like it will work. But how much does it cost?
August 1, 2003 3:34:44 AM

Apparently carbon black costs next to nothing. Certainly less than metalic silver.

Make some for yourself, the ingredients are in the report.

Have you tried it yet?

No, I don't know where to get the stuff locally and have defaulted on my credit cards.

are they so common?

so when is this product going to be avalable?

Supporting AMD with your breakable stuff.

Yes, those should be common chemicals. In fact, I believe carbon black is also used for some inks, as well as tires, etc.

You wouldn't need a licence to buy any of those.

is crarbon black the stuff they use as a non-liquid lubricator? If so i beleive i have some...

3 386DX-25's...12 volts...glue some ln2 and a wicked amount of overclocking and you get a willamantee minus 36 pins, 33.75 million transistors and a couple hundred mhz... :cool:

No, that's graphite. It's harder than Carbon Black, so it probably wouldn't flatten they way they talk about.

Not the ole defaulted credit card mess.

Polyethylene Glycol. Don't they use that in Anti Freeze.

That would be Propylene Glycol. Unless it's one of those chemicals that goes by more than one name.

What's the new "environmentall friendly" stuff made from?

OK, I decided to look up how much the stuff would cost.

At the ideal recipe of :

Carbon Black 3% @ US$500.00 per Ton
Ethyl Cellulose 1.25% @ US$13.00 per 1 Kg
Polyethylene Glycol Remainder @ US$141.74 per 5 Liters

Approx price per 25ml.... 75 cents

They'll sell it for a couple bucks a tube just like they do AS.

I think this stuff would be very messy, and because it's so porous would weldbond the hsf to the cpu.

Looks like a lot of black goop. Can you use it for a driveway sealent?

Cant really see what al the excitment is about.
When applying the thinnest layer of thermal interface material the difference between the best and the worst is only a degree or two.

Might be useful stuff to put between the core and heatspreader though.

That's a cute table (even if it was just taken right from the article not nearly as pretty at that because THGC doesn't support any table format script commands) but I don't see how it has anything to do with a real-world performance comparison between a carbon black mixture and AS Ceramique. In fact I don't even see anything that even closely relates to the theoretical maximum conductivity for AS Ceramique in that table.
