BTW going from bubblegum to as5 with less then 8 hrs break in I have droped 12+* off my NB
According to some test results I have seen AS Ceramique is by far the best thermal paste available just my 2cents worth

The Scythe Mugen performed very well for $34 in a review I found @ frozenCPU
Honestly I would spend the extra $25 and get the Megahalem, you will not be disappointed.

I may eventually replace the tim on the nb but i just put two 50mm fans on the nb and some of the vr and i got about a 10c drop in temps.

There's a post a few pages back with a guy who has 2 40MMs on the heatsink Dr Mos thing. I have one myself at the bottom angled upwards and it has taken off 4-5C. I have another that I apply later.

I haven't removed the heatsink and reapplied the tim yet. I will, but I want to mod my case first, which means buying a dremel and doing some work. I don't want to remove it several times.

I posted on the MSI forms about this problem, and people post about this issue ever day, and yet they refuse to admit this is an issue. It's sort of disappointing. Otherwise, I am very happy with the board, I just wished they would have invested the extra 50 cents per card and quality TIM.

Thermal Interface Material. There's a guide in the air cooling section that goes into detail about it.

Here's the link:

That's the link to the entire thread. The TIM post is in the third post down. I left it as is because I find the entire thread to be very good.

Everest gets me NB, but I haven't seen a SB temp. You can rest assured if you replace the TIM there too, it'll be good. I might try a fan for now, as I have mod plans int he future too, and I dont want to remove the mobo 3 -4 times over the course of the mods, lol. Now I just gotta find me that small fan... AND hope its got a normal connector, AHH!

You guys are great! +rep to Swish lol

Nice! That's a good point about buying the C3 955 instead of the 965 to save some coin!

Let us know how things go with that...

Hey, Check this stuff out. can't remember which one of these guys suggested it but it's Thermal displacement % is one the highest around. If Not the Highest! Going to be getting some myself.

They are all within like 1-2c of each other. I use mx2 as that is what I have always used.
