Good thermal paste?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,


I am looking to buy decent CPU thermal paste for my Intel processor.

Preferably off Amazon.ca or another Canadian website that offers quick delivery.

I saw these but am unsure if they are good/what is good & why?

Gelid gc-extreme. Always one of the top performers in shootouts and my favorite. Just warm it up a bit as its thick

Here is a good list of different compounds, some are easier to apply than others. Open it in a new tab if its hard to read.

Thank you everyone for all the help & suggestions!


After doing some further research I have decided to go with the Noctua NT-H1 as it only $9.95 CAD and is listed in the top 10 highest performing thermal pastes (shout out to kl6mk6 for posting that pic!).


Thanks again guys! thumb.gif
