How About A DIAMOND Heat Sink???

Why not use crystal, I heard somewhere that the structure of a crystal was very similar to that of a diamond.  Sorry for the resurrection.

Diamond is a crystal.  Do you mean quartz?

If it was a synthetic diamond, would it transfer heat the same way as a real one?  And there's no way to bring the cost down to around $50... the price of high end heatsinks.

even synthetic diamonds are expensive- not because of material costs but costs associated with making one- the 250ton press, the heat, etc.  Then having to carve one to the shape you want.  It maybe synthetic but it's still about as hard as a natural diamond- meaning you need another diamond to cut it.

Typically, a hot device is soldered to a metallized diamond coupon. Diamond's exceptional thermal conductivity (500% greater than silver) allows heat to flow from the device into the bonded diamond heat spreader, which provides a lower thermal resistance pathway to the package's ultimate heat sink.
-from the website

Just a very thin layer of diamond between the die and HSF would do the trick as long as it's bonded to the die.

I'm thinking Pentium1 style package with diamond instead of ceramic. Make it thin and the cost would be reasonable (around $200 per CPU nowadays... in a few years possibly under $50?)

Would you pay a $50 premium for the diamond die? heh[/quote]
