Thermal compound and application method?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ok guys, as you can see...something is def not right here:

222578d1312224320-how-do-my-temps-look-stress-bench.jpg

FYI in BIOS I have two voltages....

CPU Voltage @ 1.32500
QPI/DRAM Core Voltage @ 1.27500

What one is the vcore? I assume the CPU Voltage is? (I bought this pre OC)

My cooler should be pulling a better temp than that. Anyway, im going to reinstall the cooler and re-apply the thermal compound.

Compounds i have been recommended are:

-shin-etsu g751
-OCZ freeze
-Coollaboratory Liquid Pro

What would you say is the best compund for this CPU? And what is the best way to apply it? Some say tiny dot in the centre, others say spread it?

Thanks smile.gif

Everywhere I have seen everyone says Arctic Silver 5 is THE thermal grease to use. I am bouncing around the idea to remount my HS as well since my temps aren't that great. I am curious what the best way to apply the thermal grease is as well.

Like that, but maybe with half as much thermal paste.

Maybe a few years ago. These days AS5 is a bit behind current offerings like Shin Etsu X23-7783, Prolimatech PK1, Chillfactor 3, and AS MX2 (which just got a new lease on life).

As foir application, pea size for cpus and star for waterblocks for me.

This article says Coollaboratory Liquid Pro is better?

http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/cases_cooling/battle_of_the_goop_thermal_paste_comparison/5

Whats the difference between Shin-Etsu G751 and Shin-Etsu X23-7762???

I think you need more than a pea size amount for HDT(Heatpipe Direct Touch) HSF's, though. You need to get some paste into the cracks. Heh, cracks.

I changed from Arctic Silver 5 to Arctic Cooling MX-4 and can say I will never go back.

Good to know. I really don't keep up with thermal grease. I am using the thermal grease that noctua provided with my NH-D14? I am planning to use it when I reset my HS. How well does it perform?
