Lol... yeah, back to paste. The "old" Shin-Etsu will have to do... for now. I was really looking forward to the Indigo though... can't say I'm not more than just a little disappointed I didn't get to see that stuff in action.

I'm the O/P and I would like those that answered my #1 post thank you. I have no idea what the rest of this is all about. What I did do was clean off all the O.E. stuff and installed #5 because I trust it. When I do get everything up and running I will do some testing just for s/g to see if the new stuff that is out their changes anything. Thanks again.

linnemeyerhere was kind enough to link you to some amazing stuff (when it works), Indigo Xtreme. Wallonn followed with Arctic Silver... better than the stuff on many stock heatsinks.

ezeht owned this thread with the rockin post comparing a few compounds... and that's where I came in. I love thermal paste. Used just about all of em at some point. I was under the impression you were going to take some of ezeht's superb advise and consider another product, one perhaps mentioned in this thread?

You said you had AS, but after reading ezeht's post I thought you might reconsider, right? I worked with Indigo Xtreme two weeks ago. Even when things go right it's not an effortless process. I thought you might benefit from my experience? I'm sorry you did not.

You should have stayed with the Shin-Etsu once you found out you had Shin-Etsu... Thermal compound question.

I have been running Prime95 100% 20 min. cpu temps 78 to 80 deg.c with 2 stock fans on the H50. Tomorrow I should get some Noctua P14 and give them a try on the H50. O/C 4.0 Intel 960 3.2

Layback Bear, there is a troubleshooting guide on the Corsair Forums about the H50. I hope this helps.

Noctua P12

Noctua NF-P14

Also, check the RPM of your pump. It has to run 100% mine runs about 1400-1450.

Thanks for your input. My pump speed is 1418 at the present time. Just did another 100% 10 min. high cpu temp. 85 to 89 c. room temp 27 c. Give me a idea what temps I should get with that load.
