What Thermal Paste do you like
« on: March 21, 2015, 11:56:20 AM »
So what does everyone use for thermal paste.
As well should you try something new or stick with what you trust.

For me I am still using ARCTIC MX-4

Most of the big brands are within a few degrees from what I have read. I have used mx2 (seemed great), a zalman one with my cooler (also no complaints), and ic7 (great results but hard to work with).
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3570K @ 4.1ghz undervolted with Zalman Optima Cooler, Vengeance 2x4gb @ 1866mhz, XFX R9 280X DD, Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, Intel 530 120GB

Away from home light Gamer: Aspire 15.6", A8-3500m undervolt and OC to 2Ghz, Vengeance 2x4gb, M500 240gb,

I am still going through a big tube of MX-2.
For more important things I have some Antec Formula 7, but I am 99% certain that IC Diamond was better. Last time I was looking the problem with IC Diamond is availability in Canada. :/

Well I ordered some Gelid extreme, from Newegg and see how that does. Sent a email to IC Diamond. See what they say on where to pick up there product in Canada.
