post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
As the title says. Compared to say Prolimatech PK-1 or Arctic Cooling MX-4?

The paste on the corsair H series coolers is made by Shin Etsu. Its one of the best thermal pastes available (why would corsair add a paste that makes there product perform badly?) It will certainly compare and depending on fit and other variables out do most thermal pastes on the market.

Are you messing with that cooler again? tongue.gif

I believe the TIM on the H100 is from Dow Corning, which is some pretty good stuff. If you need any just let me know and I will send you some. I don't have any of that particular stuff, but I do have a few tubes of random TIM that you can have.

That stuff is pretty good. Too bad it takes forever and a day for it to properly cure.

Down right awesome stuff. I replaced it with Shin-Etsu G751, it took several re-applications to obtain the same cooling performance, my temps are still a degree or two warmer than it was with the stock application.
The stock TIM is perfectly applied.

This

And one of the reasons it performs so well, Although adding two more 120mm fans for push/pull has also worked wonders for my temps
