So I don't really know what TIM to get. I was looking at these: Tuniq TX-4, Gelid GC-3 Extreme, IC DIamond 7, Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra and Indigo Xtreme Precision ETI. Which one is the best for a copper block? Money is not a problem. I'm also open to other suggestions. Thank you.

CLP/U is arguably one of the best if not the best, but it's not very practical due it's liquid nature. Indigo Extreme isn't exactly a breeze to apply either and is pretty costly.

I favor MX-4 which it performs adequately and is very easy to apply and that's what I would recommend.

I guess I'll choose the Coollaboratory Liquid Ultra? Or the MX-4? Thanks for the input btw! biggrin.gif

Gelid which came with my Motherboard is most likely the best i've used, So easy to clean and to apply.

Cool. And darn I forgot to add that I wanted something that is easy to apply and remove.


EDIT: Down to two choices:
Gelid GC-3 Extreme
Arctic Cooling MX-4

Also Gelid has FANTASTIC temperatures! From using ceramic to this huge difference, 105C at 5Ghz with Ceramic with Gelid 87C.

Really? Wow. That's a huge drop. Guess I'll go with Gelid then.
