Anyone care to share their success stories with thermal paste, Arctic Silver or otherwise? I'm looking into this for my motherboard northbridge heat sink and am curious what kind of temperature drops people have seen by just applying thermal paste.
if you're implying that if someone made a paste with actual gold in it...uhh, no.
gold is not as good of a conductor of heat as silver is. it is however a good conductor of electricity, which in this case would be bad.
