Buy coollab liquid metal coolant!

You can now buy the coollab heat paste stuff from ebay:

A must for high-tech systems. It's not even expensive so it's gotta be worth a look, coming all the way from germany mind.

actaully, it's nickelplated copper. or something-plated copper. I heard rumour that some FX chips have solid silver IHS's, but i have yet to find one.

I remember something last year from physics, it was household cleaner used on aluminium, it actually removes the coating from it (the coating that stops it reacting with oxygen!) and makes it burn, smoke and get very hot. Could have something like that in it.....

Not too sure what it is that does it...but it scared the crap outta me. thankfully i had the foresight to try it on a ramsink first, and didn't jsut plop it on the cpu. I mean really...it should be ok, somewhat, when used with the right materials, but Danrok has a koolance block, i beleive, and they are aluminium beneath the gold...at least mine is. So a big no-no for both of us!

isn't this household cleaner on aluminum the idea behind a home made "bomb" 2 liter+ foil + cleaner= boom.
