Me too. Love mine, quiet when low, but a tornado when let loose.

Can't be any louder than a Bell 412 firing up its engines tongue.gif Oh wait, Vardars don't have that shrill (yet seductive) turbine whine to them they just push air and do their job.

I'm guessing just a bit noisy though, but man I bet they cool something terrific.

Has anyone of you used liquid metal between CPU and EK Block and GPU and EK Blocks?

Can this be done without a problem? (of course with beeing careful with transistors etc)

Or what´s your take on that?

Especially with the GPUs?

I have it applied between the CPU die and heatspreader atm but I still got plenty left and I´m redoing my loop.

So I thought why not.

possible but unnecessary on GPUs, temps with a proper loop are never going to get close to throttle with traditional TIM. If you have a nickel plated block, it is just fine to use liquid metal...just no contact with copper (stains it) or aluminum ( eats it for breakfast).

EK makes a great naked mount add on kit for very little cost. If you are considering going that far, might consider going all the way.

So I thought why not.

I used the liquid metal pads on my GPUs. Worked great! They are a little fragile, but as long as you don't bend or tear them you are good. Basically don't take them out of the package until you have everything else for the blocks installed. I never see temps above 40C.

As for the CPU, the liquid metal ultra made little difference between the IHS and the EK block, but made a huge difference when I delided my CPU and put it between the die and the IHS. so unless you are delidding, dont waste your time.

Edit: just saw you allready delidded. I don't think it will make a big difference or else the delid guides would recommend that. I ended up lapping my IHS to a mirror finish and used Gelid GC extreme.

Ok, thank you both!

I have already delidded 2 years agon, that´s why I´m reseating and redoing my loop.
I used Liquid Ultra between IHS and die and Gelid Extreme between IHS and block, like recommended.

But the thought was still in my head to use it between IHS and Block, too biggrin.gif

I already have the Liquid Ultra,all my blocks are nickel, so I´m trying it for GPU and block.

I wouldn´t care if I didn´t have the paste lying around and if I didn´t have to redo the loop...but when I´m already taking averything apart for cleaning I can do a little experiment.

Again thank you!

Is it safe to use mayhems cleaning kit with EK products, or their pastel coolants?
