I saw a youtube video of some guy making thermal paste out of industrial diamond powder and mixing it with (what is it, silicon?) paste in an altoid's tin as the dust is invasive and can screw up your lungs pretty bad, and test it in relation to good old AS5 and several others. It showed a noticeable improvement.
While searching for said video after reading your post here I found that someone has gone one step further and created a thermal paste one can purchase. Here. I'm tempted to purchase some to see how well it goes myself.
As for other forms of diamond cooling (diamond heatsink maybe? A geek's best friend ) may be a little out of the question as of now. We can only hope.
