Windows 7: Mayonnaise As Thermal Compound

Mayonnaise As Thermal Compound

Thermal Compound Roundup - October 2011 | Hardware Secrets

The big surprise of this month was the performance of the mayonnaise as a thermal compound. It worked superbly, showing better performance than some well-known high-performance thermal greases. Again, we cannot determine how long it should remain effective, but in the short term, mayonnaise was the best alternative thermal compound we have seen so far.
Something i will try in the future

Thought it sounded familiar...

How about cooling your computer with cooking oil?

I think I have the answer. Mayo and diamond powder.

Unlike most electrical insulators, diamond is a good conductor of heat because of the strong covalent bonding within the crystal. Most natural blue diamonds contain boron atoms which replace carbon atoms in the crystal matrix, and also have high thermal conductance. Thermal conductivity of natural diamond was measured to be about 22 W/(cmK). Monocrystalline synthetic diamond enriched in 12C isotope (99.9%) has the highest thermal conductivity of any known solid at room temperature: 33.2 W/(cmK),[34][35] five times more than copper. Because diamond has such high thermal conductance it is already used in semiconductor manufacture to prevent silicon and other semiconducting materials from overheating

I'm thinking some custom made aioli's so when you overclock you get a nice roasted garlic smell or maybe a basil pesto !

I have a new motherboard I just bought and want to hook up, and I'm sure it has preapplied thermal compound.
