The Thermal Compounds (Cont’d)

We also tested the Dow Corning TC-1996 gray thermal compound, shown in Figure 6. This is the thermal compound that came with the Intel XTS100H cooler.

Figure 7 displays the TIM Consultants Thermal Grease thermal compound. Its color is also gray. It’s a shame that it comes in a regular injection syringe. Is it too difficult to make a sticker with the manufacturer and product name, and stick it to the tube?

In Figures 8 and 9, you can see the Evercool Deep Bomb gray thermal compound.

We also ran a test using spray oil as a thermal interface. We just sprayed about a drop of oil over the CPU, mounted the cooler and tested. Let’s see if it works.
