kow_ciller;4911902... What the hell were you using as thermal paste before? Toothpaste?

I used it before for the 4870 reseating/repasting, then found out how to remove my CPU heatsink and then used it on there.

Babeman;4911861Another Update! I installed the paste on my CPU and WOW! It used to idle at 51C now it idles at 36C! This arctic silver stuff is good.

Yeah, Arctic Silver has pretty much been the go to paste for a long time.

I have to say though, this OCZ Freeze stuff i'm using now is a bit better though i think.

See? Card manufacturers usually use crappy TIM when they put together their cards. I find it similar to the crap that was on the AMD stock heat-sink for my 8750BE that I have(i replaced it with something better).

Actually, stock amd sinks use some pretty good Shin-etsu paste unlike the stock crap that intel uses.

Hmmm.. I figured something was weird when I was able to hit 3GHz with temps in the high 40s low 50s :uhm:

Max i can hit is 3.2GHz...it keeps rebooting if i go any higher

How do you remove the AMD stock heatsink? Does the cover just come off when you remove the screws and then you can take the heatsink off, or is there some other mechanism?

Orig. Phenom chips were very poor overclockers. Throw a new phenom in there to see 3.8-4.0ghz.

I'm confused by this post.. Usually cpu heatsinks don't have covers....

But the AMD heatsinks are held on by pressurized clamps. Only two of them, but it works well and is easy enough. :)

I think he may be asking about the 4870.

Does anyone know by chance what a good idle temperature for a E8400 CPU would be (at the non-overclocked 3Ghz)?
