Good TIM for WC'ing?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I am ordering a watercooling setup today from Petras Tech Shop, and they are sold out of AS5. Since I dont want to order fom somewhere else and pay like $6 shipping for a tube the size of my finger, what is the best TIM available at http://www.petrastechshop.com/thinma.html ???

Thanks in advance

I hear that MX-2 is good, never tried it myself though.

Shin-Etsu is also great but very tricky to apply. It also has a longer curing time, but temps drop quite a bit when it does burn in.

I was using AS Ceramique for a long time, but have switched to the Diamond 7ct TIM...the stuff is AmAZiNg.

(btw, I have used 90% of Pastes on the market...I have a box of the stuff )

Not to get OT but how easily does Diamond apply? I may buy some to try out.

I use it, its pretty thick stuff, but it sqeezes out of the tube easily. The issue I have is breaking it off once I have applied my desired amount.
