I originally saw this at Hard|OCP.

Remember awhile back that AA reported on carbon heatsinks having much better thermal conductivity that current generation ones? Well, this seems to be an interm step to that (and it is needed anyway). Once this technology becomes applied to heatsink and normal heatsink grease (not epoxy) we could see some very cool computing and quieter fans.

University of Pennsylvania scientists have determined that adding a relatively small number of carbon nanotubes to epoxy yields a compound three-and-a-half times as hard and far better at heat conductance than the product found in hardware stores. - Read More
