You sound traumatized/scarred for life.
Stuff that you wouldn't normally use as thermal paste
Toothpaste + Denture Adhesive
On the other hand, this silver paste looks intriguing...
When Deep Cool Z or whatever it is performs worse than toothpaste, you would be too. Hell, they're charging MONEY for that stuff.
Almost there, so... close... yet so far away
Finished plumbing after a week of work, was pretty confident things were fine but decided to leak test because it's the proper thing to do. Hit the switch to the pump, and my heart sank when I saw the paper towel around the slave GPU block turn wet almost instantly. Then had a heart attack when I saw water BACKING UP ONTO THE GPU from the block. Promptly cursed, shut off the pump, drained the loop as fast as I could, and took out the GPU assembly before any more harm could be done. Took the slave GPU block off and gave the GPU a thorough wipe, then left to air dry.
Meanwhile I inspected the slave GPU block and found that I literally screwed up by cranking one of the screws in too tight which cracked the acrylic on the GPU block. Welp that's $125 down the drain. But thankfully due to the leak test I saved myself from a $3500 disaster.
Water should not have done any harm to a GPU that is off so don't worry about that, leak tests are really the best way to go for sure.
You b*****d, just had to post that, eh !
Oh well, ordered a bottle ... for science!!!
Though 25g = 2.5ml; 10 cores. So I'll split it up 5-ways, if anyone's interested in testing that nano-stuff; PM me. Damn shop was ex-VAT, so total cost is 245/5 = 49,- (or $57) (inc. ww shipping, in envelope). Have some (vintage) glass syringes laying around somewhere, will add these for 8.70 (or $10) more. Otherwise it's a 1ml plastic syringe. And "no", will not post results before all four are sold .

Oh, right ... and good luck with that hydro-rig, looks awesome . And if there's threading with some of those water-circuit-components; might consider gas pipe tape for that, works perfect for sealing connectors. Hmmm ... now considering an 2m-tall-aquarium-pc-tower, with weeds+fishes and everything ... one more retirement project .
^Are you actually serious about the silver paste...
Sure, what the hell; I like to tinker/experiment. Bought a 1500W/33,000 lumen 'lightbulb' recently, just because it exists ... a high power incandescent would be 100W/~800lm, so ... probably need to wear welding helmet before switching it on (and a 1500W-capable switch).
Guys sorry for the OT... just a question... i'm looking for a fully modular PSU for my rig around 800/850W (it is a WIP project yet), what i'm looking are fully slaved cables (i don't like the flat ribbon ones that i have on my CM psu..). Which one?
