I used Arctic Silver Ceramique. Applied ~1.5 years ago. First stuck pixels showed up about 3 months ago. Fans and heatsinks were all cleaned thoroughly at that time. So it might not make any difference. They might just go when they go with age and years of non-terminal heat. I have maybe 20 dots now. Not getting any worse. Seemed to all happen over a month period and then not get worse. House was air-conditioned. Ambient air was not any higher when these failures happened.
The ceramique supposedly lasts longer. That is it stays liquid, heat cycles do not effect it. The tube is 10 years old, and still going into PC builds and still working great. Its also non-conductive. AS5 is. AS5 tends to dry out. Not sure if that is a concern for anyone. Just mentioning.
But the point is, I still got failures. TV was a 2008 purchase. I want to say there is like 10 or 12k hours on it at this point. Waiting another month or so to replace the DMD. Waiting for something else to break lol.
