    Nah, take that cheapy heatspreader off, take it to a machine shop and have them copy it in Gold then put it back on with Artic Silver epoxy .

    yeah, but takes a whole different level of machining, at least gold is partially practical

    Diamond is not the best conductor. Carbon nanotubes are. They are both made from carbon but the nanotube is produces with a uni-directional molecular structure which is required to produce high thermal conductivity in carbon.
    For all electrical geeks know about heat transfer it is still a mechanical geeks field of study.

    The P4 cache is level 3, which means it resides on the mobo not the cpu

    The fact that it is level 3 cache has nothing to do with whether it is on die or on the motherboard. The L3 cache is integrated into the chips core. No one has put cache on the motherboard since the K6-3

    So we could just say carbon is the best conductor of heat? Without being specific to what form it is in.
