    RGB RAM sales must be down.

    Some testing would be nice.

    Only thing I care about is:
    How does it compere to Noctua's NT-H1 in performance/price.

    It is my: "One does it all." solution.

    I wish them good luck, there are many thermal compounds. Lower viscosity may position well as long as applicability is still easy enough. (No tons of mess around CPU/GPU.)

    I use Noctua NT-H1 for both my CPU and GPU.

    It's still in the Top 5.

    If the data I've read is correct, this TM30 may actually be worse than the Arctic Cooling Thermal Pads.......and they're pretty damn bad...

    This TM30 appears to be a rebrand of the the TIG 780-38 thermal compound.

    I'll stick with my MX-4....

    That's why they started selling RGB dummy modules made to look like RAM DIMMs. Kappa

    I actually posted on another forum (jokingly) asking Corsair for RGB thermal compound when they announced the RGB dummy RAM kits.... I was quite shocked to see this thread pop up... I was scared I would be reading that Corsair had actually figured out a way to add RGB to thermal compound....

    I've always used IC Diamond 7 (due to the lack of electric conductivity), but it looks like there are a lot of better options these days. Might need to try out the Kryonaut paste you guys suggested on the next build.

    In either case, with that conductivity, Corsair's TM30 doesn't seem like a strong competitor. It would be a worthy upgrade to over stock thermal paste if included with their coolers, though.

    Mercury is obviously a no go but what about gallium??

    I was under the impression pretty much all these liquid metals are gallium based?

    mastergels claim of 11w/mk is unverified.
