Not really looked into TIM before, just used AS5 for years biggrin.gif

What would you recommend?

As for proper watercooling, I think it comes next, now I have a decent case. Not done it before though so nervous / bewildered.

Yeah Arctic Silver 5 used to be top tier, sort of.
But that is years ago.

Personally I stick with Gelid GC-Extreme now. Also nicely priced.

If you do feel fancy though look into these, though these are more expensive:
  • Indigo Xtreme
  • Coollaboratory Liquid (metal)

Have a read here if you like.
A nice roundup of 39 pastes. Including the Coollaboratory's.
Clicky


Mx-4 was actually tested and found worse then mx-3.
But non the less, both are great pastes.

The big plus is also that most newer pastes are non-conductive. So if you make a mess things won't go south.

Just a warning on the liquid metal. It pretty much bonds the CPU to the cooler. Not something you want to use if you swap CPUs at all.

I run BOINC 24/7 on my machine, at full load. on all cores I am on Linux, and have not found any decent stress testing software, but BOINC seems to do the job well. Its been running like this for almost a week now, no issues.

At stock everything + H60 cooler, I was getting about 58C at full load.
Undervolted to 1.18V and brought it down to 48C.
Set up an extra fan on the H60 last night in a push/pull configuration, and dusted off the radiator. Dropped the temps down to 43-44C. I also put the stock H60 fan internal pulling, and a Corsair AF120 "Quiet Edition" as the push fan, which reduced the noise on the machine noticeably.

Not sure what direction I will try to take it next. Might try to undervolt a little more, though I'm probably near the lower limits. Alternatively, with the cooling boost, maybe I will try to increase the clock speeds a little.

Keep in mind that it is Autumn where I live, and my PC is running next to an open widow. Just got a cool breeze coming through and the temps dropped to 42C.

I still have my AS5 from back when it was the standard go-to thermal paste. Does this stuff go bad? I bought it ages ago for a single repair, but only now actually started messing with other PC's, I put it on some, seemed to be working fine before I gave away the computer.

Thats new info to me.
Haven't tried it... and probably won't now. lol

For me the GC-Extreme does the job.
Used numerous pastes and this is one of my fav's.
Spreading needs some getting used to. This paste is spread with the supplied applicator.
Tried using the rice grain method but spreading actually is better.

Others in my list are:
mx-3
Noctua's NT-H1
Thermalright CF-3


Also a worthy mention:
Best in price to performance ratio.
Actual toothpaste.

Anyone tried it here?
I've had a friend of mine complain about his cooler ramping up.
Asked him if he applied paste. And he said he did.
Took the cooler off and there were some dried pieces of something on it. I asked him what he applied.
Toothpaste, why?

It does reach a point where it doesn't work quite like it's supposed to. I tried some that was ~5yrs old and it looked ok but didn't works very well.

I've tried both the spread and pea blob. I use the blob all the time and no issues. It's quick and easy. The key is to get enough on and keep good pressure on the cooler while you tighten it down "evenly"
