Can you make your OWN thermal paste??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

What can you use as thermal paste? Can you make your OWN Thermal Paste? I don't know! And neither do Riley and Alex. But they gave it their best shot. ...That's not true. 

 

 

Buy ACTUAL Thermal Paste:
On Amazon: https://geni.us/o63rdx
On Newegg: https://geni.us/anighFF

 

If you want to try making diamond-grease thermal paste better than us:

Buy Molykote 111 (silicon grease) 
On Amazon: https://geni.us/qeXl

 

Buy DIAMOND POWDER (Please wear a mask if you do so) 
On Amazon: https://geni.us/JtbAF9

Why not just mix some technical grade gallium, indium, tin, and other metals together and make your own liquid metal?

I want to see a thin sheet of aluminium foil (regular one to wrap leftovers with) placed between CPU IHS and the CPU cooler and tested.

You should do another vid now on other possible products that could work but you would never recommend any1 do .. like Mercury from a thermometer, or a high clamping force with a super soft metal like sodium with a light oil coating to stop it reacting immediately with air. Or even just soldering the IHS to the heatsink.

 

Basically anything else that could replace the thermal paste that a normal person should not or would not do.

 

Perhaps get in contact with Cody from Cody'sLab and get a bunch of mercury to fill up a liquid loop :P

Just in case Alex reads this thread, or someone else knows his username to tag him (Sorry, I do not)

I wonder if you can lap an IHS and cooler flat enough to "Wring" together like gauge blocks? And possibly the thermal connection will improve when they are that flat?

If anyone doesn't know what gauge blocks are, They are steel blocks polished so smooth they actually stick together, and nobody really knows 100% why they do this. Very cool.

Relevant AvE vijeo for those who haven't seen it.

What thermal paste costs 25 cents? o.o 

Seriously, paste that cheap might be actually worse than mustard. I guess Intel used that for their non-soldered CPUs?

We'd definitely need a lot more sophisticated ways of telling if something is flat, might be a precision machine shop around that has the tech, if not then the university should.  Might look into it as a video, although solder would be a lot smarter.

This video reminded me of a test I saw (and screenshot it) from about 2011/2012 where they tested all the popular thermal paste and some more questionable choices, with Mayonnaise being as good as the average thermal paste. As I remember they used used a i7-2700K at stock with a Custom Water-cooling setup, but I might be thermalpaste.png.44fb6b876d3dc0f2b5ac30b69ed68f56.pngwrong.

Diaper rash ointment contain zinc oxide which should be a good choice
