H50 (stock thermal paste vs A.Silver5)

1051 Views 16 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Xristo
Picked my up a H50a few days ago. First day I wasn't impressed at all. Once things got settled, i started to see my temps drop. I bought Arctic Silver 5 for my A70 not my H50. I just folded overnight for about 9 hours and cmae down to see my temps stayed at 54-59c the entire night.

Question: Will it be worth switching to Arctic Silver 5. Has anyone switched from stock H50 paste to this and seen a difference.

I have the stock fan and a enermax fan pushing air out.

But with one fan only, the temps were average.

Yeah that also helped. H50 came with a crap 1200-1300 rpm fan. Once I changed that out and added in the 2000rpm fans that came with the A70. I immediately noticed a difference. P/P

stock fan(single 1300rpm) not real load. Once you add in 2000rpm's its noticeable. Its not ridiculous. But I had those fans on my A70 so I was use to the sound. The loader the cooler right ? lol its not that load

Its already installed anyway. I know not to screw down anything (as tight as I can) to the mobo. Not sure if that guy is serious or what. Even about sanding down the block.
