now i have it to 5ghz and get a temp of 55c so i still have some spare room.
i did told u that thermal paste can make a huge difference and i am proof of it.
i am sorry i cant make screen shot otherwise i would certainly did it.
Ive used 4 different ones and they are all the same temp within3C with Arctic silver 5 being the slight advantage.
you probably didnt seat your cooler right first time to get such a huge difference like that, i wouldnt of used coolermaster stuff anyway myself lol, maybe it was crap
only good place that makes its own good paste is Noctua as its pretty close to the other more substantiated brands
what are you stressing with for 5ghz? Aida?Edited by gertruude - 4/26/13 at 6:11am
