    And you just said "performance is not measured by stickyness."

    So what is it going to be?

    performance is only measured by thermal conductivity. nothing more.
    stickyness is irrelevant. since you can't find high performance sticky thermal pads, you can't have both.

    The question is would it taste as good as it cools? LOL!

    I am actually very interested in this topic. I have a HP Envy 17 3200 CTO that I would like to upgrade the pads in. The best I can find for sale are the Fujiploy 11 W/mk pads on frozencpu.com.

    I know that Fujiploy has better ones developed, because they list them on their site (17 W/mk as stated in this thread), but I cannot find them for sale.

    Sony has developed a pad "as good as thermal paste", but again, I cannot find it for sale.


    The reason I personally would like better thermal pads is the inconsistency in my cores. Max temps range from 79 to 87 depending upon the core, and I would think better pads would help. I do not want to use paste due to gap issues, and a copper shim would be of concern if I try to have warranty work done on it.

    That is not the same product though. In the image it lists it as GR-Pm which is 6 w/mk, or XR-Pe which is 11 W/mk. The stuff I linked to is the newer 17 w/mk. It looks like it is not as putty like, elastic, or as easily compressed, but higher conductivity.

    I would love to see side by side comparisons, but don't have the time to do it myself.

    it's sarcon xr-um and sarcon xr-um-al the later has an aluminium film on it. both with 17mk/w. it surpasses many thermal pastes out there.
