I already had my cheap laugh.

Imagine if you will: A future where one mg of thermal paste costs millions of dollars and a GB a RAM is twice as much. What do you use as a replacement?

Opting for no thermal paste instead


#672

Intel already uses mayonnaise so that should be an option


#673

little spoof of an article I saw the other day. The guy didn’t test mayo so I didn’t add it. Although, personally, I wish he did mayo and miracle whip to put that issue to bed once and for all. We all know miracle whip is a better solution than mayo.


#674

100% pure beaver cowboy hat.


#675

If opting for no thermal paste. Then use sand paper an make it have as much contact as possible. Even try to use a leather strop with stropping compound.


#676

Or just use finely grounded ceramic material.


#677

Or don’t touch it because heat spreaders are already smooth and decent coolers have good surfaces to begin with.


#678

If memory costs that much, how the hell would this even be a problem worth considering?


#679

idk @HK-47 it’s just a goof.


#680

Isn’t Jif a peanut butter… hmmmn peanut butter… jif it is.


#681

It is actually supposed to be pronounced that way, as even the creator has said so. I read something long ago that he used to eat jars of Jif peanut butter while coding, hence the pronunciation. But I don’t give a damn if that’s what he intended.


#682

Chocolate


#683

Invalid! You are admonished!

#684

You can actually used chocolate. Polish the IHS with it until it has a good shine and then it can be used as a temp solution.


#685

Not an option on the poll! Double the admonishment!


#686

It is possible to use a salt instead of toothpaste. My grandmother met a very old women who was brushing her teeth with salt for her entire life and still has her own teeth. No crowns.


#687

You don’t say. I wonder if my dentist would switch to Morton over Colgate.


#688

YES. When I was a child we used salt all the time. I never had a cavity until I was told to switch to toothpaste.
