See if this helps. It's a different cooler, but the process is the same.

Also, if you can get your hands on some Arctic Silver 5, I would stay away from the stuff that came OE with the Xigmatech.

Trust me, if you are even planning to OC, you need a cooler.
Yes im in Pakistan but you see,i dont have an overclock-able cpu
Its simple 3770,still think its worth it? And i CAN get my hands on some arctic silver but it wont make more then 2-3c difference MAX. And considering its price,i can get 2 more fans in that.

I agree with pillainp. AS 5, MX-2, Noctua NH-T1, Coollaboratory liquid Ultra are all good pastes. Everyone has their favorites, but any of those are good. I don't know what you have available to you.

I would go ahead and install the cooler. Almost any cooler will give you around the same temps when the CPU is idling but as soon as you put any load on the CPU, a lesser cooler won't be able to keep the temps down as well.

I don't have much experience with TIMs but I like Artic Cooling MX4. It's non-conductive (useful if you get a bit too much on since it won't short anything out), doesn't require a burn-in period, and has a six year warranty. There are others that are better but this one is more goof proof. It also gets good reviews.

Another vote for the MX-4. I used the MX-2 for several years and switched to the newer MX-4 for this build and it works just as good, if not better. It spreads really well and air bubbles aren't a problem. It helps keep my rig very cool. Get the smallest amount you can find because you will use very little of it per CPU. A small BB or small grain of rice for Socket 1155/1150 CPU's.....maybe a tad more for Socket 2011 CPU's because I believe they are a little bigger.

I think the non K versions of Ivy can still be overclocked a little iirc?

But I would put the cooler on yeah, it will keep things cooler when you are gaming and also it looks good.

I may be wrong, again, but I think the overclock settings aren't available in the BIOS with a non K CPU, it's like OEM machines with few options. There may however be RAM adjustments, dunno.

Yeah I really ain't sure on it Gary, maybe someone with a non K series can confirm, but I seem to remember in the past in the overclock thread a couple of people posting some decent overclocks with non K.

I know for a fact the i7 3820 which is the non K Sandy E can be overclocked past 5GHz, but I am not sure on Ivy non K.
