***NEED INPUT ASAP*** H100 i7 Install / thermal grease

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I'm taking my rig and moving it into a Corsair 650D case with a new H100 cpu cooler today.

I am removing a CoolerMaster V8.

I just noticed that I'm out of Artic Silver but that the H100 has thermal grease already on the heat sink, although a smaller square than I would think necessary..

Should I wipe that off and go get more Artic Silver 5 and apply myself, or did you guys just use the grease that was on the H100?

Generally speaking I get lower temps with arctic silver however what is already on it will work fine.

The stuff on the H100 is from Dow Corning and MUCH better than AS.

If I remember correctly, what comes pre-applied on the H series is Shin Etsu, which is pretty good stuff.
install it for now, and if you're that unhappy with your temps, consider a reseat with your thermal grease of choice.

+1. The TIM that comes on the H100 is as good as anything you can buy.
