OMG PRO ONLY USING TIM TO COOL CPU HOW DID YOU DO THAT I NEED TO LEARN FROM YOU SO PRO I'M A N00B

GOSH SERIOUSLY HOW DID YOU DO THAT WOW :O

I just ordered some Liquid Ultra to compare to my PK-1 and to see if my 2500K is really capable of 5.2Ghz.

I tried it with the PK-1 but I always stop testing when she hits 80c. After 20 orso minutes I tapped 80c in LinX / IBT AVX so... Not viable for 24/7.

I hope to shave about 5c off of it with the Liquid Ultra and see if she can do at least 2 hours of LinX / IBT on 5.2Ghz (Needs about 1.456v for it i reckon)

So many misguided people believing using one thermal paste over an over can yield large temperature drops.

BS. I have a thermal paste which compound is similar to AS5 and switching to PK1 gave me 5C better temps

Hmm. No test with copper grease. Too bad.

Exactly my point. If you actually did get a 5C difference and it wasn't just a placebo effect or due to different ambient temps while testing then 5C is still the maximum difference anyone is likely to expect changing from one TIM to another. There are people out there who claim changing their TIM reduced their temperatures by huge amounts such as 10C which is ridiculous.

There are people out there who claim changing their TIM reduced their temperatures by huge amounts such as 10C which is ridiculous.
Wait, if you notice i am using chips with 65W TDP and 60W TDP ... Would be much more different if i was using say a i7-920. My chips are unbelievably low-leakage
