Dell OEM card to new system

Should work just fine. As long as it is a slotted card which you can see if you open the case up. I am not aware of any limitation that dell puts on these besides the obvious thermal design and power delivery (pci-e connector) that probably will be lacking.

I was wondering I have a Dell pre built.  i7 8700 and Gtx 1060 6gb Dell OEM card. Am I able to pull the card from this system and stick it into a custom build with it still working fully or does Dell have a lock on the card?

Thanks the 1060 is only temporary. First stage of the upgrade is to pull the cpu and gpu into a new system which I build myself. Then hopefully by the end of year throw a 2070 into it. Speaking of is it necessary to remove the thermal paste from the cpu before applying a new cooler?

Well, depends on the time of application. Did you do it this week? sure fine. Is it the same thermal paste from the beginning of its lifespan you'll need to replacement. Sure you can use it but it will probably be hard and quite brittle and impact thermal performance. Thermal paste is super cheap these days.

 

A good plan for sure on the swap!

Heard Artic make a good thermal compound will probably go with them unless there are any other recommendations.

Artic does make great thermal compound. The silver 5 or MX4 does the trip nicely. Any other compound would also work though would probably only make a difference of about 2C.
