OK, my usage has shown it to perform better and acording to spec's it has a little under 3/4 the thermal resistance of AS. Now if only i could find the old spec sheet from NTE. The new one gives thermal resistance in weird numbers, the old one used the same units as the ASII specs.

Now, physist i ain't (mostly because i can't spell it) but having a lower thermal resistance results in better performance.

yes, NTE does make the pink stuff, i don't know how it performs, they also make little white 1-2 gram packets.

NTE303 is standard silicone based zinc oxide thermal compound with 0.418WmK thermal conductivity. It is equivalent to the Radio Shack paste and other generic white zinc oxide/silicone compounds.

Not trying to pimp my product here, I just hate to see misinformation spread.

wow, an AS representative...

well, if you guys can find a way to keep your stuff from uglying up my slugs, you'll have me hooked... alas, if this other stuff performs better, and it doesn't make my slug look like a gray piece of s-----,then it's got my vote...

(looks like we might have a war over thermal grease now, too :D)

I thought so...

Hey got a question for you, on the artic silver webpage you say your product is only conductive under high ammounts of pressure.  well I'm a numbers guy, what exactly is "high amounts of pressure"?

The pressure at which AS2 becomes conductive depends on the thickness of the compound and the characteristics of the mating surfaces. In general, the thinner the layer, the less pressure that is required.

Ineffective cleaning that only removes some of the suspension fluids, but leaves the micronized silver particles behind can also increase conductivity .

Our web site has info on how to properly remove AS2 from different parts of the CPU.
