  If you were talking about electric conductivity, you would be right. The
best (at least to my knowledge) heat conductor is diamond (there were
efforts to use CVD diamonds as heat sinks on computer chips to carry away 
the heat from hot spots. Worked well, too, according to the guy who gave
the presentation I attended). Now diamond grease would be a mite too
expensive for most of us....
