    is anyone still using these? im having some technical difficulties with it. my temps are fine a week after i installed it. i could run my cpu at 3.7ghz and temps would stay in the mid 80s. now my cpu is hitting high 90s when running on 3.0 ghz. my cpu isnt overvolted. im considering applying the metal pad again. is it ok to stack the pads or just use single layer? in the cool lab's video on youtube, when they were installing the pad they put a copper pad in between 2 layers of metalpad. is that necessary?

    I would just use thermal paste like IC Diamond or Arctic Silver 5.

    Some of the guys in the Alienware 18 forums are having spectacular results with the Liquid. Not sure about the pads though. Perhaps pose this question in the thread.
