post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
my GX2 is hitting 70C with fan maxed so its time to upgrade the Chinese garbage i have on it for some decent stuff and i am 23 cents short of being able to get 5 so i found some cheaper stuff called matrix i never heard of it before. if i get it will it damage my 9800?


thanks

TIM is TIM...some have higher conductive properties, some are harder to spread. I bought some $.99 no-brand thermal grease off of Fleabay a few months ago that cooled on the stock cooler better then what came with the heatsink. It will be fine
