I seem to have detected the "break-in" that Arctic Silver claims occurs
-- after a couple of weeks, my CPU temperatures have dropped from between 115-120 F to 110-115 F.

yup, should be 50-200 hours worth of baking to set the paste right.

Arctic silver needs to die. At least buy their new nano diamond stuff.

why? its still good and much better than most stock pastes.

With that same train of thought, I guess we should forgo wheels because circles are soo old now... we have squares!

Squares are older and offer no distinct advantage.

I must be hallucinating: the CPU temperature record now shows 100-105 F after about 6 hours of marathon gaming, no less.
Yesterday I left the unit idling for a couple of hours and the temps were down into the 90's.

depends on the workload on the cpu, most games won't eat through cpu cycles.

Yeah you should run LinX or Prime 95 to test the CPU.
