Antec Formula 7 Nano Diamond Thermal Compound ReviewPosted on 2011-06-03 20:23:55 by Thomas De Maesschalck
Right around the same time I was asked to take a look at the new KÜHLER line-up, I was told of this new thermal paste Antec had been working on. I was asked if I would like a sample to test out and hopefully be able to show you that there is something to be said for the diamond pastes I have heard about, but had yet to test. Of course, I said yes to the offer, and finally I have the opportunity to bring you what I received and what the results of the testing are.
Diamond based pastes aren't really news. I have seen the IC7 paste on the market and elitists were buying diamond powder and mixing it with high grade TIM already on the market. While the professionally mixed IC7 has had great reviews, the home brew results were, well, mixed! - Antec has stepped into the thermal compound game with both feet this time. This isn't the ordinary non-curing, non-capacitive, non-conductive thermal paste. It uses the benefits of the second most heat transferable substance known to man currently; diamonds.
