How can I utilize a pyrolytic graphene sheet for cooling benefits?

I have a pyrolitic graphene sheet from an old project where I made a passive dslr sensor heatsink. I still have maybe 3x4" leftover and was wondering if I can use with cooling a cpu? I causes heat to spread evenly so Im wondering if I can apply it direct to my cpu, then put a layer of deep bomb thermal grease, then bolt on the heatpipe/fan combo. Will this work better than just using grease alone?

Alternatively I thought about cutting small pieces to stick to my ram.

Any one use this stuff?

TIM works so well because it fills in the imperfections in the CPU IHS.

Using it on RAM would be a waste, those chips just don't get hot these days.

Are you saying graphene is a tim?

I'm referencing traditional TIM used for computers in my previous post.

Anything can be a TIM, but I was explaining why what we use works well.
Graphene sheets will not fill the imperfections mentioned.

You may try graphene thermal paste for cooling CPU. That good.

Graphene thermal paste price is 1 kg 6500 NTD.

Thanks.
