i was just looking at the thermal compound that was supplyed with the 462 and there is some kind of grit in it , i just sent this email to swiftech to see if they know any thing

Gabriel

I just bought the 462 heat sink and with it was a little tube of thermal paste this paste appears to have some type of grit or sand in it (fortunately I use ultra silver) this im sure would reek havoc on a cpu and the hsf the tube was marked as follow`s

AOS THERMAL
COMPOUMDS
1-888-NO CREEP
NON-SILICONE HTC
AOS P/N: 52029KY

ok here`s the response i recieved

Thank you for notifying us.

You could call AOS 888 number and ask.. , but I don't believe this is normal.

This compound is supposedly the highest quality grease (except for Arctic Silver).

Hey kat,

I just ordered my 462 the other day, and if I can remember after the long 3 week period, I will let you know if mine is gritty.
