That's rich, no pun intended.
Nobody is going to pay these derps 76$ nice try. I'd rather just get Pro from FrozenCPU and hopefully purolator doesn't rip me off like UPS did on my last order. This is downright robbery.
Dude just order it from ebay:
Question for you guys. Can I add CLP as the paste on my GPU? Its a tiny die to a big cooler, so Im hoping it will also lower temps a great deal.......Thoughts?
You can, but it depends on the model. In general, companies use extremely high end paste on graphics cards. So if you are planning to do it to something like a modern GPU such as the 7950 or 770, don't expect a major change in temps, even with something as high end as CLP. If this was something like an older series GTX 280 or a 4870, then yea you will see a significant drop in temps.
It also depends on how much of a temp drop you want. Putting CLP on a 7950 will likely only result in a 1-3C temp drop - is that worth it to you? I only got a 1-2C temp drop using CLU on my Sapphire 7950, and I push extreme temps on it (i also remounted twice to be sure). But my GTX460 saw a 9C temp drop. However my 7950 needed every degree it could get, while my 460 already ran super cool.
If you use something as mediocre as MX-4 on a 7950, you will likely see an increase in temps. That's absolutely terrible advice.
CLP and CLU are capacitive and conductive, therefore we are told never to use them on video cards since a drop in the wrong place would spell disaster.
You have to be pretty stupid to let CLU just spill all over the place and not clean it up... Oh no, I somehow spilled tons of this reflective, mercury like liquid all over my capacitors. I'm just going to ignore it and not wipe it up before turning on the card!Edited by Belial - 6/14/13 at 10:39pm
