I use it quite a bit in the auto repair industry...usually on spark plug wire terminals, and ignition modules. I don't think it would be too good for a thermal compound, between the hsf and cpu, if that's your intention...

If so, I'd really recommend Arctic Silver for this. Much better suited for this application.

Alot of us use dielectric grease in our cpu slots and sockets while using a peltier. It will prevent any moisture from building up in the slot or socket due to the cold temps. You can get it at any automotive store. Or maybe not where you live, where ever that is?

as long as it's not conductive it should work. Some people have even used Vasoline to do it. But you need to be carfull there as some of the Vasolines will eat away at certaing plastics or materials. But you could try some on an old pci card you got laying around or something. Just to make sure.
