What's the best TIM for the i7-8700K?
I plan to overclock the 8700K to maybe 5 GHz, mostly just because I can. I doubt I'll need it overclocked at all. I refuse to delid it because I can't afford to take a chance of ruining the CPU.
I have the Thermaltake Frio which is compatible with LGA 1151. I also have some extremely good fans on it. I don't know if I can find the link to them anymore, but they're made by Cooler Master, they have a 110 CFM rating and a powerful 5.2 "h20" rating. I'm very happy with them. They are powerful and very quiet as well. So, please don't give me any recommendations for CPU coolers or fans.
So yeah, what are some good TIMs I can buy for overclocking the 8700K?
Loneliness is a good thing to share with someone.
The virtuous spirit has no need for thankful approval, owning a certain conviction that what has been done is right.
