Which thermal paste are you using on your 45nm?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello all!!

I just got my:
E8500
batch:Q745A809
packaged:01/30/08

and I ordered a tube of Artic Cooling MX-2 thermal paste. Furthermore, i'll be using a (lapped) Tuniq Tower 120 on a Asus P5E-X38 mobo. I'll be back with temps and screenies as soon as the mobo arrives!!

But in the meantime, what are YOU using on your 45nm?

MX-2 Thermal Compound (4g)

High Performance Thermal Compound for the Enthusiast
MX-2 is a high thermal conductivity and low thermal resistance compound for components that require optimum thermal dissipation. It is ideally suited for use in CPU, GPU cooling and other applications between power semiconductor components and heat sinks where thermal conductivity is a major factor.

Main Features:
* High Thermal Conductivity
* Low Thermal Resistance
* Non-Electrical Conductive
* Non-Capacitive
* Non-Curing
* Non-Corrosive
* No Bleeding
* Odorless

Safe to apply anywhere
Since the MX-2 does not contain any metal particles, there are no problems regarding electrical conductivity or capacitance. Unlike other silver and copper compounds, MX-2 ensures that contact to electrical traces, pins and leads cannot result in any damage.

Durability
With MX-2 no curing and no bleeding of the compound are possible. In contrast to other products, this compound does not show decreasing performance over time, does not need to be reapplied and has a durability of at least 8 years.

Technical Specs:

Density: 3.35 g/ cm3
Viscosity: 2850 poise
Net Weight: 4 gram

I've heard lots of good things about the AS5 but according to the packaging of the MX-2, this stuff should be better! Anyone have any comments on this?
