I've not heard of anybody using it, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I use and recommend this: Arctic MX4 .

Yeah, I think they make the "Wing" series of fans. Never heard of the paste though.

I've seen it around for a while and people seem to like it but they do say it's expensive....big deal. Me I still have plenty of AS so why replace it? If you don't mind frying your CPU to get this to flow then this stuff looks crazy good.

Sounds awesome How you been and have you gotten your issues sorted with the Waterpump ?

What Silicon did you end up using in the end did you get something more heavy duty ?

Did you attempt to clock higher again as well very curious lol

Thermal Paste
After reading some good reports on Shin Etsu thermal paste, I bought some, but am having a lot of problems with getting it to spread properly. It tends to clump together, and when forcing it out, it leaves such a thin covering that the lettering on the CPU is still plainly visible. I'm about to...
