cpu install/cpu fan install

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Not sure if this is where this question belongs but I am not sure what to use regarding thermal paste. I purchased an i7 3770k and it came with a free Arctic Silver 5 syringe full of thermal paste I believe (3.5g) and the CPU fan is an Enermax ETS-T40 and it also comes with an Enermax Dow Corning TC-5121 syringe of what I am assuming is also thermal paste. This is my first ever build so my question would be which one do I use to put on the CPU?

Thanks for your assistance.

Artic should be fine unless you are doing serious stuff normal thermal paste will be at bare minimum acceptable

Here is a link. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/printpage/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-September-2011/1377

It would seem that both are about the same.

Awesome thanks. I don't think it's too serious. I have the CPU and CPU fan listed above. I have 2 X Gigabyte GTX680- OC 4GB (2nd one is coming in about a month or so), 2 X 2TB WD Black hard drives, 1 X Samsung 128GB 840 pro series SSD, Kingwin 850W PSU (Might have to upgrade after 2nd card comes) and an Asus BD-RW. I think thats all the important stuff. Case fans as well for cooling which may be upgraded to w/c in the future for better temps.

So it's pretty close to built just need to load an OS is there an FAQ or guide where I can put pictures? Does it go in the build log section? Also do the pictures get uploaded and stay on site or are they linked from another place like that picture website like flickr I think its called? I tried searching but I may just suck at searching.

Edited: added picture website name.
