Thermal paste

Recommended Posts

Specs? Why don't you have thermal paste?

Without thermal paste, cooling would be much worse and the cpu would likely throttle if not shut down if it gets too hot.

 

Moved to Air Cooling.

Work? Maybe. 

 

Work in a way that is usable? No. 

 

You need thermal paste (pre-applied or self-applied) between the cooler of the CPU and the CPU. 

 

GPUs come with thermal paste.

Yes but terrible temps, just order some thermal paste from amazon. Or you can find a local PC shop and see if they got any thermal paste for sale.

I would never recommend going without thermal paste you should buy it. They are around 5 bucks no excuse to not get one it will help you majorly

Yes 100%

Just put a small penny sized or pea sized glob on the CPU and install, no need to spread.

Off topik slightly. Buddy of mine found dry thermal compound. No idea how old it is, it was in the factory tube, but no longer liquid, pretty dry. 

 

Is there a way to somehow re-liquefy it for the appropriate consistency?  Anyone had experience with this issue?  Perhaps @WoodenMarker

 

Thanks in advance for any ideas

It depends on the paste and if any solvents have been evaporated. Even then, it can be reintroduced and remixed. That being said, it's likely impractical compared to just buying a new tube of paste.

For cpu yes I would recommend the thermal grizzly for max performance but it's up to you

Also the thermal grizzly paste is good but not as needed if you don't have like an i9 extreme that thermal paste you ordered should just do it

:) Done that! many Thanks for your help.

 

Here, Arctic MX4 is pr'lly the most popular pick, due to the low price (~3.5 euros for 4g)
