[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 64

post #631 of 28369
Looks like this is the proper place for this question:

I'm hoping to find an H50 under the xmas tree this year. What's everyone's opinion on the pre-applied thermal material. Is everyone scraping it off and applying their own? Need to know because I'm out of AS5, so I'll have to order it and I'd like to have it on hand when (if) I get to tinker with the H50 on xmas day.

Thanks

Its fine if you dont plan on remounting but if you do plan on remountinga few times in the near future your going to want to use AS5.

Yeah a few of us on here, myself and Killhouse have experienced a slight difference of 3-5 degrees C, lower of course with new thermal compound.

I hope Santa is good to you...

Ive started using MX 3 over AS5. Its a preference thing - I like to place my own TIM.

You don't need to 'scrap' the pre-applied TIM off, just rub it off with alcohol and a lint free cloth - its fairly soft, its not much work.

I have found using alco swabs is usefully (the swabs doctors use to prep skin before an injection). I get them from work but I'm sure you can pick up a box of 100 at a chemist or drug-store.

MX3 is nice, I noticed a temp drop. I think it's the cheapest 2C drop you'll get

MX3 is pretty much the best right now as far as I know.
