    I paid for my six tubes of IC7, put it on everything I own and the outstanding original application results have not wavered at all and my two day old build is 1-2 C above ambient surface temp next to the case at idle. I will load it up soon.

    2 day old build: ek supreme cpu block, 1 p.a. 120.3, 1 p.a. 160, 2 eheim pumps.

    pics@ www.411overkill.com (forums/members rigs)

    Additionally, I used IC7 to buff off some crud on my waterblock, its so fine that it serves as a fine lapping, you gotta try rubbing it into the water block, not too much pressure, just enough to buff clean, it works wonders. Don't try and spread it out onto smooth surfaces when applying, just use the jolly green giant pea and screw that sucker down tight. I don't know how much pressure I'm using on the new build but its definitely more downward pressure than recommended.

    It would be really nice to have a fat tube of this stuff for sale instead of several mini tubes. Throw in one of those spreaders too

    This is 1 of a number of charts we will be throwing up on our website in the next couple of days. I thought you would be interested as you guys are included.

    These are the average results of 5 forum give away/beta tests with 112 users tests reported. Some of the more exaggerated improvements over the average might be attributed to a poor initial mount although at least anecdotally as I have not pulled the numbers yet as I want a little larger sample seem to be caused by the pump or bake out of the previously installed compound.

    On the other side of the average line the small , zero or negative results at least as far as I can suggest might be attributed to more competitive compounds, misfired mounts, misread temps or variations in hardware, software Etc.

    As most of you guys are pretty rigorous about your testing I am taking the Ockham's razor approach, lex parsimoniae. 9 out of ten times when I have a problem with temps it is usually a contact/pressure problem. I'll rework the sink mount and get a 5 degree drop, But on a more subtle basis if I fine tune it I can get a few more degrees out of it under perfect conditions.

    The more subtle aspects to getting that last mile in ideal temps is awkward at best and subject to nebulous debates but this is the applied effort you people have been driving for and I am much appreciating it.

    The contact/pressure testing will give us some good data whether my guess proves right or wrong the info will I think be useful to users across the board whatever compound they use.Attachment 64311

    so the raised areas are where themost gaps are in the mount? or where the most contact is made?

    The raised red areas are 85 lbs the low areas are less pressure. The white areas little or no pressure

    It's where the most contact is made. The higher the area,. the more pressure is applied.



    Thanks JoeC for posting. I got your email, but I just sold my video card and my new one (8800GTS 512) is in the mail.

    My GF wouldn't let me get on hers after she saw that I took mine apart and in pieces (rebuilding, new fan placements and cable management).

    at Work, I just don't have the time right now other than quickie posts.

    dam 85lbs of pressure, didnt think a heatsink would have that much

    I'm actually considering grinding down the aluminum support plates a little, and lapping my IHS.

    The real concern I have is the malibility of the copper heatpipes. If I grind away too much of the aluminum support, the copper pipes will get squeshed under 85psi.

    Perhaps shave away less than a millimeter just to get a solid contact between the IHS and heatpipes of an HDT cooler.

    I couldn't get mine to spread right even after heating it up. the consistency just seems too pasty and difficult to be worth it imo.

    Pea size on center. Mount sink-let the sink do the spreading. Applied as to our spec we have not been having problems or complaints.

    As noted the consistency is for high reliability over long periods of time. This is not like the cream type retail compounds.ICD7 this was engineered like an OEM paste for durability as well as performance. That's next on the agenda some great data & stuff on reliability Grab some popcorn and sit tight for a couple of weeks..

    you cannot spread this stuff like you do as5/c,mx2.it is waaay to thick for that.the peasized method works much better than you may think.i was skeptical at first(putting it mildly)but after a couple of tries i was very much impressed with the spread.the performance was also very impressive

    I also found the best way to apply is either a large dollup (to ensure full spread over the IHS) or for my Q6600 the second photo below which is another paste and a bit sloppy, but this method from Swiftech gets the paste over all four cores..

    This is a "long-term paste," for sure. That it is to say it will not give immediate results (instant gratification) similar to Tuniq TX-2, however; it will eventually satisfy out-performing and outlasting many other pastes IMHO.
