prolimatech pk3 or artic mx4 or gelid gc extreme thermal paste which is better ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I remounted my corsair h100i and changed the corsair h100i pre applied thermal paste to cooler master high performance htk-002 and my temps went up 3c . I want a thermal paste that is better then the stuff corsair uses out of the 3 thermal paste I named which one is best ? and also would it be worth it to buy artic clean cpu cleaner to remove the current thermal paste I have on it ?

Again:

There are many many thermal paste "shootouts" available in the internet.
Just Google thermal past shootout

There is only a few degrees (like 0 - 3°C) between thermal pastes these days, it doesn't matter what one you get so long as it is not arctic silver (it is out of date now). Its nothing worth worrying about.

Just save some time and get the cheapest out of the Noctua paste, Thermalrigh Chillfactor 3, Arctic Cooling MX2 or the ones you listed

Like others have said you won't see much of a difference between any of the pastes, but personally I've always like Promlimatech pk3 the best. It's easy to apply and seems to have consistent results. I've used it for my GPU's for multiple reseatings with great results.
