Great results with IC Diamond 24 and cheap cooler

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I just tried few days ago IC Diamond 24 on old PC (i7-860 @3.7GHz) and CM Hyper TX3 the degrees were ~45 c Idle and ~ 66 C gaming.

Now:


The TX3 cooler was hard to install so I had to pull it off and install many times so regardless of that the thermal compound perform very well
Totally recommend. thumb.gif

IC Diamond is great for that reason. I always get the same temps after every application. It's so easy to use.

I've used quite a few top tier paste (Shin Etsu, PK3, etc) and was only able to get the same low temps as IC Diamond after a few tries.
