    Does anyone know what phase is being changed? DOH!

    Is AS5 etc. considered "phase change material"? <lo

    Phase change materials melt and solidify at certain temperatures, also
    called Thermal Pads usually found stuck to the bottom of a new heatsink.

    Phase change material and thermal pastes fill in the microscopic voids
    between the CPU and heatsink contact area to transfer the heat from the
    cpu to the heatsink more efficiently.

    change like a pad does when heat is applied or removed.

    between the CPU and heatsink contact area to transfer the heat away from
    the cpu to into the heatsink more efficiently.
