Best all-round thermal compound

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

I've been doing some research on thermal compounds and I couldn't find enough information on how long they last or needed to be reapplied.

So my question is, which is the best all-round thermal compound that doesn't need to be reapplied every 6-12 months and which is easier to clean while not sacrificing performance?

Using a 3770k and Swiftech H220. Probably will delid.

Thanks,
Steve

IC Diamond, Prolimatech PK-1, and GC-Extreme by Gelid Solutions are all top-notch thermal compounds. If I had to pick one to use exclusively it'd be GC-Extreme thumb.gif
