Quick Question Xigmatech Vs Noctua thermal paste

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does it make a difference which thermal paste I will use for my nh-d14 cooler. I got some Xigmatech PTI-G4512 paste when I ordered my stuff from newegg for free. Should I use the Xigmatech or the stuff that came with the noctua cooler? Does it really matter? thanks.

This Noctua compound is more than sufficient!

Don't know about that paste, I got the PTI-G3606 (I got a review of it on newegg if you care to look), and that seems to perform about the same as AS5. The Noctua NT-H1 is better though I believe.
