Hi all

I was using Arctic Silver 3, on the spec below which gave me an idle temp of 35 and 43 degrees C fully loaded. Saw some reviews on the web so i bought the above paste from

In the thermal compound section.

Installed it fine, but had to warm it up a bit as it was quiet a thick paste. (i put the syringe in warm water for a while, it was sealed up so it was fine).

Now i have temps of 28 idle and 33 fully loaded.

It says it takes three days for it to work properly. today is day four and it is brilliant.

Would definitely recommend it :-)
