Diamond Thermal Grease

This was an interesting endevor I read about, in which diamond dust was mixed with thermal grease to create a diamond based thermal compound. Most thermal grease compounds contain silver suspended in silicone. This idea takes the use of diamonds which has a higher thermal conductivity compared to silver. The exprienenet apparently resulted in almost doubled effectiveness in keeping temparatures down.
