I9 and liquid metal?

 Share

Hi, 

 

I've ordered some of that fancy thermal grizzly stuff , but was it actually a good idea for my first ever build? Maybe I should just stick with regullar high-quality thermal paste instead , I mean it is conductive so if I will accidentally apply to much of it it could short my motherboard or sth ?

 

I am planning on using Corsair H150i PRO cooler with that "paste" , any advice for me ? :)

You need to delid the CPU which voids the warranty and if you got a i9 9900K I think the delid process is even more difficult than it used to be. I would HIGHLY suggest never using it as TIM between the CPU and cooler itself as that's just asking for trouble. Just pick up some Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut and be happy.

7000X then sure, but with 9th gen just stick with the factory solder. The gains are small and sanding the die is risky

It is actually a relief to hear that :D , one thing less that I can mess up. 

Thanks
