    Not sure why they'd call it that. Seems to me it will just make their product harder to find, and a potential lawsuit from Intel.

    On other hand it's the second version of the Core thermal paste that exist since years...
    Only the word Core is patented from Intel if i remember... They already could have done that lawsuit since years.
    Core 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 9 are more know as iCore or i now, and they could have lawsuit AMD using the same number for equivalent in the same wagoon :)

    I can see someone that did not read the packaging think this is TIM for use with a cpu/cooler and bond the water block/cooler permanently to the heat spreader. Once it cures it is damn near impossible to break the bond without irreversible damage. Be even better if the cooler covers the release bar for the cpu socket and you cannot remove the cpu from the socket.
