Was wondering if anyone has heard of or tried this before when replacing the stock thermal paste on their gfx cards.
http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/DiamondGrease/OverView.aspx

They have stats at the end of the instructions.  I looks like they were able to get a 33% decrease in thermal output...

Any thoughts on this?

To bad that these Diamond TIMs scratch lapped IHS or Lapped HS's. IHS or HS doesn't even need to be lapped in order to be scratched. IC7 is known for it and to stain the IHS & HS's. I'd stay away, stick with something like Indigo Xtreme or Shin Etsu. Some GPU's are glass surface and some are nickel either way, they will get scratched.
