The Thermal Compounds (Cont’d)
We also tested the Rosewill RCX-TC060PRO gray thermal compound, shown in Figures 6 and 7. This compound doesn’t come in a syringe like the others; it comes in a nail polish-like tube, and is applied with an included small brush.
Still looking for good (or, at least, peculiar) “alternative” thermal compounds, this time we decided to try chocolate. Figure 9 shows our CPU with a small amount of chocolate over it, while Figure 10 shows it after the test. It is clear that the chocolate melted in use, spreading itself correctly over the CPU.
