Thread Starter 
Going to reseat my CPU for the first time (never taken out or put in a cpu yada yada)
, going to reseat the cooler i mean, corsair h70.
Which tim should I go for ? was looking at...


Deepcool Z5 Thermal Paste with 10% Silver Oxide Compounds

OR

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Silver Thermal Compound 3.5-Gram Tu

Both are 14 NZD.

Will they suffice?

I'd get IC Diamond personally. I bought it and saw a 7C drop over Arctic Silver 5 on my 2600K. The only downside is that its a pain to clean up lol.

Okay well if we're stuck between those two- I'd pick the Z5 if for no other reason than because there is no "curing period." AS5 needs about 200 hours before it "bakes" long enough to reach its maximum effect. At least with the Z5 you get a quicker indication if adjustment is needed.
