Share JJ1217 a b à CPUs April 14, 2013 4:20:51 PM The paste with the EVO is excellent paste, just because it comes as standard doesn't mean its bad. I've used it, and its one of the best I've used. m 0 l Related resources Looking to install a CM Hyper 212 EVO into my build.

I can buy some from eBay I guess. If you want to get both AS5 and special thermal compound remover you can. Look up AS5 in eBay and there are plenty of packs that come with both the cleaner and AS5. m 0 l ShadowProject April 14, 2013 4:55:30 PM Awesome!
