Says it comes with TIM applied on the corsair site, but I assume it's either poor quality or needs to be re-applied for the best performance. I'm going to use it on a qx6700 and I'd like it to be top notch. Plan on the push-pull fans as well.

I found that using the TIM it came with yielded just about the same results compared to when reapplied.

And it's not poor quality TIM either - good stuff comes stock on it!

Yep using the stock TIM that comes with the H50 and it works great no problems with quality, I wonder where the Shin-etsu TIM is made?

I looked at another thread and saw that the stock TIM is good stuff. I have to start realizing that most questions will be answered if you just search around these forums.

Oh well, hopefully I'm starting to learn enough to actually start helping answer other people's questions in the near future. I'm addicted to building these things and I don't even play games or anything. The new rig I'm working on will be for a home media center though. My sig rig was for my dad.

The stock thermal tape is Shin Etsu, and there is no need to do anything to it. Shin Etsu generally outperforms the cheaper MX3 and AS5, although it is all subjective.

Come and introduce yourself at the H50 thread with some nice pictures!

Since it is applied liberally to the base of the H50, I simply smoothed the residule paste left on the i7 (to eliminate air-bubbles) when I returned the H50. They use lots of it, which the H50 likes
