All Pages
  • For testing the pastes, I have used a 230w peltier in order to have a high thermal load and make the differences bigger and noticeable.
  • Room temp was at 24 dergees always
  • Coolermaster V8 with Nanoxia 12cm fan@1800rpm was used
  • Temps were taken from a copper plate between peltier and cooler(simulating a typical cpu heatspreader)
  • Temps were taken with a digital IR thermometer for accuracy
  • Before every new paste everything was cleaned with alcohol
  • For every paste I have done the break-in time as was specified by the manufacturer
  • Each reading was taken 5 times to ensure accuracy, if anything abnormal was noticed the test was done from the beginning.
