stock cooler thermal paste?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi

I'm planning to get a Ryzen 5 3600 and I'm gonna use the stock cooler , I have some arctic thermal paste laying around that I could use instead of the stock thermal paste, should I do it? does it make thermals better or the difference is negligible?

Maybe a 1-2c difference if at all so not worth the effort. Also highly depends on what arctic thermal paste you have but in general stock paste is more than fine.

Stock will do, I always have some Thermal Grizzly lying about and like to change it but there shouldn't be much difference. Just make sure you put the right amount on but not too much.

I have the mx-4 arctic thermal paste I bought it and never used it. I guess it might be not worth the hassle, I thought it would have a big difference.
