H100i pro

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Very small and short question, I bought the H100i pro, and some noctua NT-H1 thermal compound. Thing is there's allready some thermal compound on the heatsink, should I use the one supplied by corsair or wipe it clean with alcool and use the noctua one!?

Just wipe the pre applied paste off, since you already have a potentially better paste on hand. Alternatively try install the cooler with the pre applied stuff to know how to do it and what will the spread on the CPU be before cleaning things off


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (+100/+500, 1650MHz~1750MHz 0.78V~0.85V) RAM: +4GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 787 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

The preapplied paste is good. You can just use it and replace the paste when needed.

Thank you very much WoodenMarker for your answers on both posts! Actually found a youtube video of someone benchmarking both products I have, preapplied paste was 2 celsius lower than NT-H1! Never seen any recommandation on thermal compound durability!

NT-H1 should last for at least 3 years at room temp and on the cpu for 5 years or more. https://noctua.at/en/nt-h1-3-5g

You can expect most pastes to last a few years and to worsen gradually over time. I recommend replacing the thermal paste when temps are no longer satisfactory.
