AS5 truly does work WOW who knew.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have never used AS5 Before and this is my first time.
I must say It works quicker then what i used before and big improvement.

Before and after.

BEFORE----
IDLE 31c --- LOAD 55-57c

AFTER----
IDLE 27c --- LOAD 45-46c

thats a way big difference. Finally my Tuniq is showing guts.

Before i was using Zalman super thermal Grease with a brush
Now using AS5 tube.


second picture is of a different cpu but i did the same exact thing, my cpu is not lapped anyway In 3 years it will be but i have a warranty lol

If both surfaces are lapped, that's still way too much AS5...
