...and I wanted to share my results with ya'll. Especially those of you who don't think we can reuse thermal paste.

 

Back in around March this year my NVMe (Kingston A2000) just borked itself for some reason, 2-3 months old and I had to RMA it. To get it out I had to take my HSF off (Be Quiet! DR4) and I didn't bother to apply fresh paste because I didn't want to use the last of my Kryonaut. Now though I wanted to reseat it, after all I have the Be Quiet paste included with my cooler if something happens.

 

I ran Cinebench R23 before and after just to see if there was any difference, there was a little but nothing I would consider noticeable. Fan curves was the same and to make the potential difference higher I had my two ML fans stopped for both runs. Ambient temp around 26° (whooh warm...).

 

Pre reseat
Max temp: 75°, highest frequency: 4050,  score: 8064pts
post reseat
Max temp: 73°, highest frequency: 4050-4075, score: 8347pts

 

So there you go. 2 degrees difference. A little higher score almost 300 pts which is not bad but again not a huge difference.

but why doe, almost every cooler comes with TIM.

5 minutes of your time or a better performing cpu...

 

also you have to move your cpu cooler around with a contact surface covered in TIM why not just take the time to clean it off and put new stuff on!?

I dunno.. I guess because it's a silly little thing that's a real pain not to have when you build a system or replace a HSF?

I put it down as accurately as possible and if needed move it in position but I don't think it moved around this time. Be Quiet has good mounting mechanism. Hyper 212 was much harder to mount while keeping it still.

I explained that in the original post.

Difference wasn't noticeable. A little difference but I think I would get better performance by shutting the floor heating off and opening the windows but it's nice to have it warm inside in the winter lol.

I thought you said you have a tube that came with the DR4

Yes but I doubt it is Kryonaut. I guess could have used that and saved the Kryo ...but I never gave it much thought. At the time I was mostly annoyed that my NVMe only lasted 2-3 months and had to wipe much of my data to get my PC up and running until my replacement got here.
