Ya, a cheap tweak thats worth every single cent. Seriously even when you thik the system is in equiblirium... just apply the silclear.. you start seeing improvement again. Its amazing.
I found, with SilClear, that as thin and even a coat as can be applied gives the best result. I even found that it was worth it to buy some decent fine-point oil-painting brushes from an Art Supply shop to get better control in applying the coat. In any case, a decent brush makes applying it to new surfaces a more pleasant activity. It's hard to imagine ever using all of the SilClear that comes in a single container.
So now people are applying arctic silver to their contact surfaces?
If, by arctic silver, you are referring to a silver paste product designed for thermal conductivity, then, no. The silver particles in SilClear are shaped as flat platelets for better electrical contact between metal surfaces in close proximity. The silver particles in thermal conductivity products are shaped more as round blobs, from what I've read about these two types of silver paste products.
thanks for the tips. I am going into Paint brush appreciation now trying to find out and appreciate which one is the best applicator for it
Seriously. I don like the default applicator prvided. sbulack has a very good idea
