Hi Forum

I read that the TIM used is of very high quality, if I had the link I would pass you it, apologies..

It was an informed article, not 'just' a view of a fan of one TIM over another. Not that am saying views are not worthy..(dont bite ma heid aff other forum users please note..)

It rates highly although others here have changed with mixed results from what I have seen in the Forum pages so far.

Give stock a chance...get the airflow right and woo hooo..your away -))

Hey, I got a question about the thermal paste that comes applied to the water block.

I had to remove the wb from the cpu because I had to RMA my motherboard but I noticed just a tiny bit stayed on the CPU and most of it is still on the wb. I have attached a picture. As you can see the paste was only smudged a bit from the force of it being screwed to the CPU.

What do you guys think? Is it ok to put the wb back on the cpu without appling a new coat of thermal paste?

Edit: Oh, and is it ok if I don't use the adhesive pads with the bracket on the back side of the motherboad? It was hard as hell getting those off the board I had to RMA. I don't think there is most more adhesive power in those pads anyone.

For best resuts you will want to clean off the CPU and the H50 and apply a new coat of Thermal Paste.

as far as the adhesive pads I think they are there just to be hand so the back plate does not move around on you when installing the top side. if you can do both with ease you should be fine. you can always just adhesive the side to the bracket and put a thin piece of rubber on the side that mates with the MB. Thinking of some shrink wrap cut open to lay flat....

Yeah replace TIM.

You reminded me of a quick funny story with that back plate.
I went back to fry's to return another bad board. Thinking after 3-4 problematic boards my unlucky streak was over so i stuck those adhesive pads on Fry's was about to close so i had to take it off there. I told the guy handling it i needed that plate! Well the frys "Tech" preceded to try and remove the stackcool I let him fumble for less than 8 secs Even more wild than that the H50 was on the invoice but was not being returned.
He got my H50 plate off with some solvents and handed it to me. then credits my invoice an extra $79.00 for the H50 I'm a pretty honest guy but if it weren't for me having to tell the mobo manager " when i'm in this store with my credit card you better be on the other side of the store Long story








I gotta get in on this. Holy crap I'm only on page 42


I have no case at the moment due to Mobo heatsink and rad not getting along in my small case. So i had to make a tech bench... just without the bench This was better than the rad not having a home. I still need to keep painting my media room and get a shopping cart of mounting hardware. I did this in a pinch

Ok well I decided to apply a new layer of thermal paste on the cpu and clean what is left on the water block. Thing is, the only paste I have on hand is mx-2 from last year and the paste that came with my new CPU. It's a core i7 980x if that make any difference.

It says Dow Corning TC-1996 on the intel paste that was in the box. Is it better than the mx-2? I really need to know fast because I have a long day ahead of me and I really want to get this build up and running. Thanks.


Edit: I noticed some here posted pictures of how to apply thermal paste to the cpu with 1 pea size in the middle and 2 on top and bottom parts like in this picture I made. Is this the best method?
