I like that. Do they have one for AMD?

No need to change the pre applied paste it is a high quality Shin-Etsu. The difference changing from this would be no more than 3c.

Folks assume it comes with Shin Etsu cuz the other Corsair closed loops before came with it. But apparently it does not. But you are correct. Do not change it because it is good, a little better then Shin Etsu even.

Hi

Well, after seeing the cooler box, I saw that there is no termal paste on it. I should choose one for Corsair Hydro H80... And, in which part of the cooler is the liquid? I don´t "hear" any liquid at all...

OK, Now I see the problem.
The cooler has already the paste placed on it like a square, but a part of it is gone. Can I clean all of it and replace the place for another thermal paste?

1. What is the thermal paste that comes with the cooler?
2. Should I buy another one instead of the default one?
3. What is the best application method of the thermal paste for this case?
4. Is ths thermal paste only to apply on the processor or GPU as well (something which I don´t know what it is exactly)?

Thanks.

Use the Indigo Xtreme. Best Thermal paste EVAR! YouTube it.
