Aqua only uses thermal pads over the VRM. And yes, it's supplied. You need non-conductive thermal paste for direct contact between the block and memory modules. I recommend either Grizzly Kryonaut or Phobia Nanogrease Extreme. And of course, CLU for the GPU itself.

You need to be careful that the rubber rings sit properly.

The highest i have seen it go is 1885. gaming is usually around 1838-1845 but then temps kick in and it drops to 1810-1825 at 70c. Firestrike is around 1797-1810 can not wait for waterblock to be released these fanboy coolers are to loud at 100% fan...smile.gif

Why not Grizzly for the GPU too? Wouldn't liquid metal of the CLU actually be in position to damage the chip?

Far better heat transfer with CLU. And why would you think that it would damage the chip?

Not sure; somewhere I've read it can damage the cover of the chip because it connects with it all too well. How do you clean a liquid metal paste, btw?
Also, why not CLU on everything then? Is there a reason not to go and use CLU on everything, from the CPU to GPUs and VRAM, RAM etc.? smile.gif

CLU is hard to get off of metal. You'll have to scrape it off of your block if you ever want to re-apply it. They provide little pads with CLU to help you do this. On Intel CPUs, cleaning it off the IHS (not the die) causes a lot of the chip information to get wiped (not really important). But CLU always wipes cleanly off of the CPU/GPU die itself.

CLU is metal. It's conductive. So you can't use it everywhere. Grizzy Kryonaut and Phobya Nanogrease Extreme are the highest performing non-conductive pastes. You use each one where appropriate.

I know about conductivity, but I was interested in this 'taking off' part since I supposed it could be something like that. smile.gif

Well, I'll probably test all of these since I'm moving to a custom loop - my 5960X even on moderate 1.27V generates up to 80 deg on 30 ambient when running 4.5. I don't think it should even run that high on a pretty good h155i Corsair AIO...

Definitely get that under water. At 1.41v mine never hits 80c.

OT... it is under water... an AIO... but the performance is ... lol.
