2600k thermal paste

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm getting ready to buy the components for a new 2600k based rig. I have never put a cpu together. Does the 2600k come with thermal paste...and if so...is it any good?

Doesn't have any on the CPU, but the cooler does.

Just buy a $5 tube of Artic Silver 5 and you should be good. There was a recent news post on the best ways to apply the paste as well you should read.

I definitely agree with Zen - just buy some Arctic Silver 5. It's not expensive, and it's good stuff. I never like to use the included stuff.

Even if it does, they always use way to much and you will see a difference with putting your own TIM on. I wouldn't go with AS5 though, Arctic Mx-2 or MX-4 both get similar temps to AS5 without a cure time and without being conductive.

Yes it comes with paste better than the Arctic silver 5.

By the way, here is the NH-D14 homepage, it provides a lot of information about the cooler and their specifications. http://noctua.at/main.php?show=produ...s_id=34&lng=en

Here is the site for compatibility with ram and motherboards that will use the NH-D14 for CPU cooling. (Just select your motherboard and look for your motherboard model number.) http://noctua.at/main.php?show=compa...s_id=34&lng=en

As far as good past/bad, there was that article that showed pasts sauce working just as well as any of those fancy expensive pastes that your all suggesting. So take those with a grain of salt. I say it all is in the application.

Aftermarket coolers usually come with a good TIM pre-applied, but I like to remove it and apply some myself using the "tiny dot" method. Arctic Silver 5, MX-2/4, and shin-etsu are all good.
