It seems very possible to lower temps, but I am doubting the temp difference he was showing.

someone made a huge deal about the thermal conductivity of diamonds a long time ago >3 years. im supprised it took this long for someone to figure out a way to do it.

the contact b/n the heat sink and the proc is only one part of the puzzle though. lets see them pop off the cap and put the diamond paste b/n the die and the heat spreader. or for added value run the proc through a cnc mill to shave the cap to within .0001" flatness, thats extreme.

I seriously doubt the temps he's telling us.  Personally I think Arctic Silver 5 is about the best thermal paste is ever going to get.  Its also worth noting that the OEM pastes are pretty good now too.  Back in the day you could get really good results with after market thermal compound simply because the OEMs were using that waxy stuff that was crap, and heatsinks were pretty rough to begin with.  Now we have good OEM paste, factory lapped heatsinks, and higher wattage CPUs.  I still recomend AS5, but I think of it now more of a optional thing than a required.

AC5 has been the King of Paste for years. I seen some that can get a little bit better temps and without the 7 day cure time.
