post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So right now im using the stock paste that came with my Zalman Cooler.

I'm think of upgrading to:
• Coollaboratory Liquid Pro
• Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra
or
• Arctic Silver 5

Recommendations?

Coollaboratory Liquid Pro or Ultra.


I'd go with Pro. You won't go wrong. Don't get AS5. I have it and don't like it.

Plus your temps basically drop 2x better than AS5 with CLP. AS5 dropped me 10c, CLP will drop you 20-25.

Maybe 20c with a delid but when properly applied its been shown that from the best to the worst tims was only like 6 degrees variation. As5 fell right in the middle of the pack. Its old tech but all these fancy new tims are marketing gimmicks more or less.

correct it isn't a nightmare to get off but you cpu IHS will have no wording left after removal and I got about 1c drop using it vs mx-4 on my IHS but of course I used it on the die. Bottom line if you ever have to remove it all the letters and numbers will be gone off the IHS so if you mounting and never ever going to need to send it back to intel or sell it to someone you might have to show them what cpu it actually is and unless they are testing at your home which is doubtful its not worth 1-2c drop in temps. that just my opinion

i dropped 32c on my delid with liquid pro inside and out. dropped 30c on the second one i did for a friend. dropped 12c on my 2600k build.

not saying mx-4 is bad. but the liquid pro drops temps alot more.
