    Default Super Lube heat sink compound

    Super Lube heat sink compound (good to 500F)
    https://www.super-lube.com/Content/I...k_Compound.pdf
    States: Thermal Conductivity 0.174 W/m-K

    However
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_paste
    "The filler loading can be as high as 7080% by mass, and raises the thermal conductivity of the base matrix from 0.170.3 W/(mK) (watts per meter-kelvin) up to about 4 W/(mK)"

    Could it be they have not included the metal oxide filler?

    I'll just stick to Super Lube for my bike chain.

    That would explain why my CPU is so fast these days!

    Apparently, diamond is a CPU's best friend...or...cubic boron arsenide. Until then, I'll keep with the value-oriented Protronix Series 9.

    For me longevity is more important; I only want to do the job once.

    OK, cost is also a big deal; the stuff above is $7 for a lifetime supply.

    I finally got to using the Super Lube thermal grease... what a disaster, what was 60C under load became 70C
