(It's part of the reason why I've been putting this test off. I don't wanna take the H80 off >.<)

yup, hold it off i would recommend, although i really want to know how the h80 compare to the d14.

i reseated my h80 with mx3, disaster... now i'm looking for some quality tims....frown.gif

Well IMO all you really need the P67 has it. But ya lets say hypothetically I was in the market for a maximus IV, I'd pick up the z68 version instead just because it's newer tech.

well, temps went up...and it's not just a one off. after the first application of mx3, i thought maybe i didn't apply it correctly, so i did it a couple more times, and the results were consistently 4-5'c hotter.

the 1st and 3rd(current) application i used the dot method, and 2nd application i tried to spread it out like corsair's stock tim was. i think the dot method is maybe 1'c better as we all know mx3 are terrible to spread, so maybe i didn't spread it evenly or for whatever reason...

so stay with stock tim unless you know you have a tim that's sitting at the top end of the tim benchmark list

Keep in mind that some aftermarket TIMs require a curing time, which means their initial performance might be pretty bad, but after a few days of use or a few hours of burn in, they might get better. The stock TIM might be made available on our store for people to re-seat their CPUs. We'd definitely like to make it available to you guys.

My idea is to have square-cut pads of the stuff that can be applied consistently - this way people could re-seat their heatsinks with the exact correct amount of TIM instead of gooping it on or going way too light. Also, it'd make benchmarking heatsinks more fair since you could always be sure you used the same amount of TIM between heatsinks.

Maybe you guys could sell packs of them that we could buy? I'm liking this.

The stock TIM is Shin-Etsu...it doesnt get any better than that im afraid,those that scraped it off to put something else on wasted their time.

CorsairGeorge said it's not Shin-Etsu on the H80.
