It was good for its time. There is better on the market for sure, but it sounds like you are using glorified toothpaste, so AS5 would likely be an upgrade.

I used to use it all of the time many years ago until I found out it had a 200 hour curing time before you got the best heat transfer results from it. It's OK other than that but it is capacitive so you have to be careful not to use too much and have it ooze onto your other components on the video board.

i have ordered the Arctic Silver Céramique instead beacuse its non conductive which means it can be applied on GPUs as well and MX-4 is unfortunately not available here. i have learnt my lesson generic thermal compounds are as bad as having no thermal compound at all. with this ***** paste with my Modded bios which is set at 1506 Mhz, 3.7Ghz memory and 1.218V my temperatures reach 83C in 3d mark they would have reached even higher if i did not stop it in between, while i got 79C in valley , while previously with my old paste i used to get 73C on heaven and 77C on 3dmark

That's all I use as I have been told it is very reliable and there is nary a difference between the different thermal compounds out there.
FYI on the comment that it gets better results after curing for 200 hours. I have not noticed any better temps and it has been way more than 200 hrs since I installed the paste.

But I am curious, are there better thermal compounds out there?

Hi, I'm new to the forum and a new 980 owner. I bought the MSI OCV1 (yeah that really ugly one) just to see how it compared to an AMD 390 and am going to keep the 980, but am now thinking about exchanging it for a better breathing ASUS or Gigabyte.

I was able to overclock to 1418 MHz/1519 MHz boosted (1544 max), and 4045 MHz memory, and got a 15180 standard Firestrike graphics score. The card does throttle itself now and then because of the heat though.

From what I've been reading I got a pretty good card, if I do exchange it for a non-reference card, do I run much risk of getting a much slower card?

Why don't you try flashing BIOS on that card with a better fan settings ?
First you can try it in your OC software and see if that helps your temperature issue.
This is my Ref. 980's settings and temps are not as horrible

Didn't know you could flash the bios, neat. I'm just using MSI Afterburner, I would leave the fan at 100% when running Firestrike and would see it still throttle towards the end of the benchmarks. I currently have a custom fan profile set now to turn the fan on to 100% once it reaches 60 degrees.

When benchmarking, max temp will get to 98 degrees in Afterburner, although in Nvidia Inspector it will show the max temp as 10-20 degrees lower for some reason. I obviously don't get that hot during normal gaming, maybe a quick peak up to 90 degrees, and this was even before overclocking. I still feel this is a bit high.
post #9428 of 10545
try this in Afterburner
30% fan to 46 degrees next mark 70% fan @ 65 degrees and final 100% fan @ 75 degrees
Dont make it complicated for that Outdated Software smile.gif 3 marks is all you need as you can see in BIOS wink.gif

Ok I updated my custom fan profile. So do you think my current OC and Firestrike scores warrant keeping my current card as opposed to playing the silicone lottery?
