Nice. I've got the same MB and CPU. And finally booting off a SSD brings a world of joy. I would have gone with Gelid thermal paste over the Arctic Silver, though.

Meh, AS has done me well all these years and last I researched, AS5 wasn't that bad of a performer and if I really cared about temps, I'd water cool
post #5 of 19
The problem with AS5 is that its old. There are newer TIMs available now that cool better, have no curing time, and aren't electrically conductive. Its the curing time that usually sways people. AS5 isn't bad TIM, I just don't see a reason to buy it anymore.

The rest of the build looks solid. Do you have a list of games ready to go?

Good luck with the surgery.

Well feel free to show me something better for cheap and I'll consider it.

Dragon Age: Inquisition has been hard on my 2500k, next up would be Far Cry 4 and BF4. After that it goes to Diablo 3, Witcher 2 and 3, World of Warships Alpha, Evolve, Dreadnought, Skyrim and maybe GTA 5.

Oh, and maybe Star Wars: Battlefront if EA doesn't completely ruin it....

Last I checked the best non-metal TIM was Gelid GC Extreme.
post #8 of 19
IC diamond 7 and noctua ht-n1 are good.
post #9 of 19
I like Noctua NT-H1, but Arctic MX-4 is popular too. Gelid GC Extreme is probably the best performing paste, but its harder to work with too.

See comparisons here.

Nice list of games. That'll definitely keep you busy for a while.

eh I still use AS5, it's cheap and proven, I'm not going to worry about 1-2c in load temps with a more expensive product. When my AS5 runs out then I'll switch.

But yeah, its a classic IMO.
