The stock TIM that comes on the H100 is very impressive to be honest, i've since re-mounted mine and use AS5.....They seem almost identical. I'd would be prepared to buy a tube of TIM though, as re-mounts are required sometimes to get better surface contact between CPU/Block.

Yes, it will should do fine(sorry couldn't help it lol). By removing or replacing it your not going to get some kind of night and day performance change. it is however recommended that you change out the TIM in your rig about once every 6months to a year to prevent the TIM from drying out. No need to be paranoid. According to Corsair they used Shin-Etsu or similar. No need to panic over the TIM on the H100. The only real weak point of the H100 (outside of the fact that its a CLC) is the fans.. silly noisy for the temps they provide.

guys, i have a generic thermal paste here called "heatsink compounds zp 360".

as im bored and cant wait for the new branded paste, maybe, i have to try this generic paste for the mean time, is it worth it?

here is the pic to be exact:

See my post above your's. Same thing apply's. If you don't need to change to TIM, don't. If its been on their for about a year or so it wouldn't hurt to swap it out. Application is more important than brand.

Hmm.. well i thought i would just pop this in tongue.gif

The corsair H50 and H70 coolers use Shin-Etsu and the h60, h80 and h100 use Dow Corning thermal paste (for corsair) that should perform just as well as the Shin-Etsu.

i see and got your point with your post,

but i doubt im getting an efficient performance of the h100, because as i see the tech mount this h100 to my rig, he didnt even use any compound to wipe the excess or the old thermal paste in the surface of the cpu, he just wipe it with tissue.

so i think, that causes the problem.


please advise me a good TIM before ordering online, since we dont have a nice brands here in our country.

and please, do you advise me to try remounting it with that generic paste posted above while deciding what to buy and wait for it?

thank you.

For cleaning you can use rubbing alcohol(higher % is better) and coffee filter's work great as a cheap lint free cloth. That was a bogus move on the tech's part, he should have known better than that. What CPU are you running, and what are the temps at full load? That would be the first place to start. There shouldn't be any problem using the generic paste you showed, but I would check temps before messing with it. You might be getting perfectly acceptable temps.

If your looking to buy TIM I would check out the link Juggalo23451 gave for a reference(here is the link again). I personally will use anything I can find as long as its not ArcticSilver5. The only reason I won't use AS5 is because it has a 200 hour cure time before you get optimal temps. I do try to keep ICD7 on hand because I like the name lol. Temps are acceptable by my standard's and it's kinda cool to have Diamonds in my TIM. ICD,Shin Etsu, Chill Factor, Geild GC extreme, Arctic Cooling MX-4, dosn't really matter. All of them are top shelf and will provide more than acceptable performance. I would consult the list from juggalo23451's post and select based on what name and price you like to be honest lol. But you might not have to spend time and money on replacing it even though the tech seems to have botched the install. report back with temp's and go from there. ohh yea, when you post your load temps be sure to include your ambient(room) temp too, that is very important.

ok sir, thanks for helping. here it is:

ambient temperature:
since i dont have a device to measure ambient temperature, i just rely on the internet what is the ambient temperature in our place right now, and it is 28c but since it is evening right now here, i assume that the ambient temperature of my room is 30-32c, because when i enter, it feels hot compared outdoor temp
i am not sure with my room.

i7 2700k @ 4.7Ghz @ 1.305v

idle: 42c (C States disabled)
full load: 75c (IBT ran less than a minute)

so its frustrating.

so whats your advise sir?

lol, You called me sir..

Do you have Hyper Threading on? Even with it on those are a tad bit higher. I think its safe to remove the cooler, clean off all the TIM and reapply some of the generic stuff's you have and recheck temps. Hyper threading will raise temps a decent amount but I think that's a bit high.

have you verified as per instruction the installation of the CPU block and hardware?
on the corasir forum, that seems to be a sore spot for issues. another would to
see if the pump is at proper rpm of 2200-2100rpm on the CPU header in the BIOS.
unless the TIM is wasted on installation, TIM isn't the problem. and all the new
paste might do is lower 1°-2°, but i m thinking there is something else wrong here.
on a 19° ambient your shouldnt be near 70° unless there is no air flow or you
have a large pocket of air in the pump. make sure the highest point of the radiator
in not the hose end. make the non-hose end of radiator the highest to trap any
air (and there is air in there) to avoid air in the pump.
