How long does Shin-Etsu G751 can last? I always wondered that myself. Even ARTIC SILVER 5? I always wondered. Anyone?

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking here.

Not trying to be a wise-guy but could you try it again, only in english this time?

It's Shin-Etsu G751. If you remove if and roll it into a ball you can pinch off what you need and then store the rest in wax paper and a ZipLoc storage bag.

You can definitely use the MX-4 but it's not as good as the G751.

~Ceadder
Alrighty, lame I wasted money on the Hyper 212+ and the blademaster...and the MX-4. But I was all about the water cooling novelty and it def works better than the 212+ (at least by 5 degrees)

I found the ranking the most interesting part. Both AS5 and G751 recorded the same temps. Reason G751 is ranked above it though is (0)

the AF5 though IS a bit confusing. Did Antec recommend a cure time or did they just summarily dismiss that thinking the enthusiast community would never listen to them anyway.

That made me go read it again, and discover the 2009 results of an 80 way comparison. I assume they are the results you mention.

One high-profile overclocker (and Gigabyte GO OC 2009 champion) once told me that if the surfaces were lapped and polished as good as possible, and mounting compression was exceptional, then Thermal Interface Material would be an unnecessary component. He was right, because in a perfect condition (which is impossible to achieve) the processor and cooler would have metal-on-metal contact with nothing between them creating resistance. Since that scenario just isn't realistically possible, we have these products to provide excellent enthusiast cooling performance instead.

For Mergatroid:
Yup. And have found no new source of information to update the list. Possibly because there aren't many new TIMaterials on the market at this time. Lots of new pads and maybe a couple new TIM but nothing noteworthy that I've read about. 2009 is old news but apparently not for TIM.

post #16969 of 28469
HI everyone, first post here. I just picked up a H70 and got it installed last week. Idle temps are about the same, load temps was down 8c. I have a couple of questions if you guys don't mine. I am open for anything, so feel free. Right now I have a HAF X case with all the fans set for intake with the H70 mounted on the rear as exhaust.
1. Has anyone every tried the Noctua P14, the 140mm that fit 120mm holes with it.
2. Will lapping the base help any?
3. I read a lot where people recommend other kits, not ready for a full water loop yet, but open to the idea. Just unsure what would work best.
4. Right now I am only running a 4.0ghz over clock and i am at 40c idle which I don't like. I want to run a 4.2 daily overclock and push it higher to test and just see how far i can go.
5. I am a warm room, where sometimes the wife turns the fire place on and the computer only sets a few feet from it, so any suggestions I am open.

My thoughts is that I am going to have to do the full water loop thing, but I don't have $500 to pay for full set up at the moment. Any suggestions to get the best out of what I have or the a course of action that is not only good, but not to high in price. my system should be in my sig.

My thoughts is that I am going to have to do the full water loop thing, but I don't have $500 to pay for full set up at the moment. Any suggestions to get the best out of what I have or the a course of action that is not only good, but not to high in price. my system should be in my sig.
1. From what I've read the Gentle Tyhpoons are the best for a rad setup. If you can find them. A lot of people are suggesting the Yate Loons fans too for a budget rad fan.

2. Lapping usually helps yes. Like maybe 3C max under load?

4. Yeah that is high. At 4.0 GHz on my 950 my (CPU) idle temps were never above ambient. It was at ambient whenever my computer was on. Full load never go above 48C CPU, the max core was 61C.

5. How warm is the room because that will be a big factor in how cool you can get it.
