I would not use the h80 on the amd chip as you will waste the tim that comes with it.

Use MSI Afterburner to overclock your gpu and look for one of the overclocking sandy bridge-ivy bridge guides on this forum and you should be in good shape!

TIM is easily replaced, toss it on there and get your temps in check. Just put new TIM on the new processor when you get it in December.

I realize Tim is thermal paste but at the expense of knowing what does it stand for, and i believe the pirate that comes with the h80 is prob better than one i could find

You can buy far better TIM than what the manufacturers put on their products. You have to look at it from a business standpoint; They are going to use the least expensive, yet effective for design, TIM. This doesn't mean they are using the best TIM out there.

There is nothing wrong with using the unit now and then again later, and just reapplying the TIM. What do you think those of us that upgrade our CPU's a few times a year do?

Last time I heard about Corsair's TIM choice, they used Shin Etsu which is some of the best stuff out there (at least the particular TIM they used).

The supplied TIM on the Corsair all-in-one units is top notch. So you have yourself a dilemma tongue.gif

What is your AMD chip? What are you running it at for speeds and volts?

Maybe you can bring down the volts and/or overclock to bring down the temps?
