What is some good TIM now? Haven't purchased any for a couple years. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Thread Starter 
I was thinking of replacing the factory TIM on my Z68 chipset and the GPU chip on my GTX560 video card. Can I use the IC Diamond for those chips?

I used to use Shin Etsu but I recently redid my rig from the ground up for optimization and switched to Gelid GC-Extreme. The Extreme has a nice consistency for spreading and I am enjoying lower temps from idle and load of about 5 degrees. I'm sure its a combination of reseating the CPU fan, new airflow configurations, but the GC-Extreme is doing a hell of a job giving me thermal headroom on my 4770k. Just my 2 cents, although it is expensive as hell.

I used it on a 480 and a 680, as well as an nForce 590 chip. Never had an issue.
