i tried this on my Xeon E5 and holy shit

I'm going to try this on my Quadro, I'll post results later
This is how you do it:
>apply thermal paste on CPU
>place a penny on the CPU
>apply more thermal paste until the penny is completely covered
>Install heat sink
the penny increases the amount of thermal paste between the CPU and heat sink
heat conducts better this way
the physics behind this is a little complicated
as volume(V) increases, density(p) will decrease and heat capacity(C) will increase
heres the wiki page on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_capacity#Specific_heat_capacity
Heres the tutorial: https://youtu.be/Bxh-JetddSg
>Implying thermal paste serves any other function besides reducing contact resistance between the heatsink and the CPU
>Implying you don't want the smallest amount of thermal paste that fills the air gaps between the CPU and heatsink
>Implying the specific heat capacity has fuck all to do with it
>Implying your stupid trolling attempt will work
Using a very thin layer of a bronze plate between two layers of thermal paste, is something techs actually do in laptops when the distance between a cpu or gpu and the heatsink is bigger than what it's supposed to be. Replacing thermal pads with this setup (2 layers of paste, bronze plate) is common as well.
enjoy ur zinc explosions.
>is to increase the volume of the paste
Increasing the volume of the paste does nothing.
Thermal paste has good thermal conductivity, but it's still a nonzero amount of thermal resistance.
The optimal amount of thermal paste is the minimum amount needed to cover the surface. Anything more than that decreases efficiency.
nvm that redneck video is shit. he threw water on it at the end and his definition of explode is just the zinc breaking out of the cooper shell. meh.
this on is better.
imo just leave out the penny and put sugar and potato cholrate on the cpu then mash the heat sink on top.
