Thermal Paste Other Uses?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Bought some MX-4 for my CPU and my H-60, but Ive heard talk that it can be applied to other aspects of your system?

Anyone wanna tell me where else I can use it to receive cooling benefits and how? Like in the case of a gpu?

Thanks

changing the tim on the gpu is defo recommendatory as it can lower your temps slightly and help improve their lifespan especially if you fold

You could also re-apply the tim on the north/south bridge on the mobo

I use it on my GPU.

Other Applications: between power semiconductor components and heat sinks like NB or SB chips.

TIM is thermal compound . I wouldnt rip apart ur gpu if you dont know what your doing .. could make things worse .

Have you used the mx4 on your cpu ?
