Yes the absolute best, it works just as good as AS5 for thermal conductivity but it also doesn't freeze at sub-zero temps, like AS5 does.

i dont think you need any dielectric grease with a mach2 if you use the proper mounting and seal string<br><br>
thx though

You don't really need dielectric grease but it does help and it can't hurt.

dont use dielectric grease between the mach evap and the cpu, the dielectric grease is used on the pin area where you mount the cpu into the mobo to prevent pin rot<br><br>
even with the seal string and everything i use the dielectric grease on the cpu pins, just cover the mounting are and kind of push it into the pin area on the cpu then mount thecpu and wipe up any extra then mount your evap and stuff to the board, dont forget to use the heater on the mounting kit that goes in the back and make sure it has a good seal<br><br>
the biggest thing is getting a really good seal everywhere, ensure the seal string forms a nice seal on the front and back of the mobo and youll be good to go<br><br>
with the stock mounting kit its relatively easy to change out also, i had to build a custom/ghetto mounting kit to get mine mounted to the am2 board that ive got and its a little harder to switch out but performs very well

WHOA! you need dielectric grease with the MACHII. Though it is a nice mounting system, its not full proof. Dielectric grease in the socket is needed to prevent "pin rot". Born if you have anymore questions PM me

I used the white heatsink compound that came with my LS in the socket when I did my QX6700/P5B install a few weeks ago. I had no problems......after I bought a new mobo.<br>
What happened is that I got a little careless when I tried it the first time. I had filled the socket with the hs compound, and was going to 'clean it up a little bit' by wiping some of the excess from around the edges with a paper towel. What happened is I caught some of the 775 contact springs with the towel and gave them a tug, pulling the end up and bending them badly. No way I could push them back into place, so it was time for a replacement mobo.<br>
When I got the replacement, I only used my finger very gently to spread the compound in the socket, and all was well. So, take great care doing anything in the lga775 socket, they are a bit more delicate than you might think.

ya my bro bent the pins on his 775 socket when he dropped in his 965EE <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> that really pissed him off. Had to replace the socket for $30 bux!
