Good Job so what did you do reseal it for leaks and just make sure nothing was damaged correct

I'm very happy this is turning out to be a good thing and a learning lesson Water pump fail is no joke I experienced it once I hope it doesn't happen again

gelid are known more for their fans.
Yeah, I think they make the "Wing" series of fans. Never heard of the paste though.
Yeah, I have 3 of them in my Lian Li. Decent fans.

Whilst good, Artic Silver is no longer the best available.

IC Diamond IC-7 / IC-24 (the number equates to tube size) Top shelf paste. Pricey , but worth it. Easy application, no cure time.

MX-3 MX-4 also another decent paste.

Well, for what it's worth, I don't have the link, but I saw what was a pretty good test of the top 15 thermal pastes. What struck me was the difference between #1 and #8 was 3C. 3 degrees is not much in my book.

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...

Thermal paste
Hey guys, So I was hoping to get some clarification (as well as personal opinions) on thermal paste application. I have heard many different ways of applying thermal paste, and I am guessing they all work. The real question is, how MUCH? I just have a feeling I put on TOO much on my new...

Used way too much thermal paste
This isn't that important, all it is is that I'm worried. It was my first time round putting thermal paste onto a cpu, and i sort of used an entire 3.5g syringe of arctic silver 5 underneath a zalman9700. Yes some did come over the sides, wiped it off, I'm guessing there is a layer inbetween...
