WARNING: From the writing of Esports Extras PC we strongly discourage reproduction of the following experiment. Using this type of resources not validated by the manufacturers can end up in irreparable failures in your hardware. Don’t play it!

When it comes to combating the temperatures in our processors and graphics cards, we are all clear that the two champions are the liquid metal and thermal paste. Even so, the comic alternatives refuse to disappear, and an amateur study today tells us about the benefits of ketchup to cool our GPUs.

And it is that bizarre comparisons between kitchen ingredients and other resources to replace thermal paste are nothing new, but they always leave us with many questions. Today, thermal paste is up against toothpaste and ketchup, two items you shouldn’t bring near your computer, let alone your graphics card.

From the German publication ComputerBase, one of the members of his community has dedicated himself to using different cooking ingredients to see how effective they were when it came to cool an AMD RX 270. As you can see, the bar is not very high, as it is a fairly old GPU with a low TDP. Even so, the results are more than curious.

The winner is, without a doubt, ketchup, which maintains the temperature of the card at a maximum of 71 degrees Celsius after 5 minutes of the Furmark stress test. On the other hand, toothpaste raises this limit to 90 degrees, while they are cheese and potatoes those that lose reaching a crushing 105 degrees Celsius.

Between this and that time we talked about the use of salt to cool our CPU, every day we get closer to the desired crossover between Esports Extras PC and the companions of Directo Al Paladar. Again, I can only advise against using anything other than thermal paste or liquid metal on your computer. Don’t even think about using ketchup.
