Check out the info @ Arctic Cooling website. It has a graph on the right showing temps.

It shows that MX-3 is better - just to be clear.

But if You want to get even better (IMHO) ... I just ordered 3 tubes of G751 by Shin-Etsu. I'm planning to strip my CH4 off heatsinks and apply this (after reading here that some of the mobos shipped with shi**y seated heatsinks), as well as my HD5870. Also there is a plan to re-seat my H50, so that the tubes are on the top of the pump/block ... and that will require some of that good stuff.

I replaced the thermal past (Zelman ZM-STG1) last night on the North Bridge and it did help, from 67 c to 49 c but I wasn’t happy l so today I lowered my 5770 down 1 slot and it dropped to 46 c, I still wasn’t happy though so I added a second 120 Lian-Li fan to the front of my PC-P50R and a 120 fan sitting on top of my 5770 aimed at the North Bridge and now it sits at 39 c. I also did a 1 hour stress test clocked @ 3.9 and the NB temp only went up 1 degree, I think I’m using too much caution.

doubt so, the yellow stuff was originally a thermal pad I believe since it had very defined edges and usually heat changes the state of solid pads to paste/grease. dont think that asus is capable of applying actual thermal paste that accurately. and the pads next to it feel more like foam when touching it. still trying to figure out what good they are.

I had to take the screw holders off of the SB heatsink and change them with the NB heatsink, they are shorter than the other.

Now the NB heatsink makes contact, pretty dumb of Asus I know.

The white pads are to prevent contact from the heatsink to the chips resisters. I left mine on.

i read you can add rubber washers to the screws to make it a better fit...

i need a CPU cooler, what you recommend(willing to spend $100 for it)

Also this is going to be my first OC, should i put all the voltages on Manual or leave them on auto?
