Toothpaste WIN!!!

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Ok, so basically havnt got any TIM lying around and needed to install some new stuff as I was without a PC.
Anyway, I decided to give toothpaste a go and well, im chuffed.
Toothpaste with the stock cooler on an i7 920 / Rampage II gene. Have overclocked and undervolted to 3.3Ghz @ 1.1v, idle temps about 32c.

EPICWIN!!!!

Now run IBT for 20 min. Get back to us then.

Don't actually do this.

Yeah, I don't even use TIM. Just straight metal to processor.

TIM is a gimmick!

Well, its been tested and actually does work as a temporary TIM.
I ran P95 for a couple mins to test the OC and got to 62c, but no need for more as i dont plan on this being long term, just a quick fix, the CPU is going to be under basically no stress during the whole time under toothpaste.

Toothpaste dries out very fast, leave it on your hand for an hour, and it goes pretty solid
