id be curiouse to know that also... for exampel- covering the entire top of the CPU with thermal past... prolly wouldnt perform as the paist is disigned, but would it actually beable to harm any part of it like aceman describes?

its not good for the processor. Thermal paste is good at transfering heat but it doesn't transfer electricity so it won't short anything.
