your silver thermal paste may not contain silver!!

taken from overclockers.com

might be old news to you, but its an important bit of info for all people at this site to hear

http://www.overclockers.com/articles938/

if you use CompUSA thermal paste (shame on you ;) ) or OCZ brand thermal paste then you might not have any silver in there!!

OCZ is doing a recall of its silver paste after it found out the manufacturer had not been making it to specification of at least 30% silver

compusa does nothing and prolly has not acknowledged the fact it has no silver in it...

This is why I have only bought genuine Arctic Silver thermal pastes in the past, and always will in the future.

While 2 days isn't exactly long enough to call a thread dead, please have something more monumental to say next time you revive one.
