But hey on a side note, you found the 80way comparison and looked at the list, but you didn't make note of the codes to the right of the brand? Off the top of my head I believe that AS5(4) is what you should see if you go back and look. That 4 is the code for the procedure and the cure time involved. I believe that 4 was nothing more than listing that it's ~200 hours which is 8.5 days. Not gettin on your case just tryin ta impart some good knowledge to a fellow Overclocker.

Thanks bro and everyone else but yea i take all the info people stress to me and i soak it all up and i take notes also as i go.. I tought myself eveything i know about computers ever since i took one apart to try and make it faster about 10 years ago lol!! But yea on that 80-way chart i got the AS5 that is all the way at the bottom of the list it was right over top the shin etsu TIM they both had the same rating of an A+ and the temp range was also the same but yea i saw on there that it was a 200hour curing process which is fine by me especially when im using Ultra Premium TIM right now and it got a rating of a C- and trust me the C- is really showing on my temps of my gpu and cpu im so glad i ordered that AS5!!!!

Yeah I bet. I have a tube of Ceramique floating around here somewhere. I ran out of TIM and was waiting on my tube of G751 to arrive and didn't want to waste the X23 on the MoBo heatsinks. that was a mistake. Instead of Idling at 40-44c which is normal once the NB fix is done, I was averaging Between 47-54c sometimes a bit lower but very rarely.

Now I'm back to reasonable temps.

That's the only way to learn though do it yourself with some trial and error.

Just don't put a huge amount of frosting paste on the GPU like Apple.

Microscopic silver particles suspended in an electrically non-conductive grease. There are no more electrically conductive thermal pastes except for CoolLabatories products.
