do i need thermal gel?...first build - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Thread Starter 
lol....okay...since thermal paste is pretty cheap ill just buy it....your only suppose to apply like a drop right?....and i heard arctic silver was a good company
Edit: never mind I misunderstood you....if i was to overclock later on i would need a better heatsink so ill just stay with the thermal paste already on the cpu fan...i dont need to do anything to that right?

You have a P55 and an i7 750, you have a good system, there is no reason not to overclock at least a little, even good thermal paste will help lower your temps on the stock heat sink and you can OC probably 200-400 mhz with no problems. All you have to do is put in the right voltage and keep an eye on the max temps when doing a stress test. It's really easy, you won't hurt anything. You have some good hardware.

That case is good for cooling too.
