Hyper 212 + Thermal Paste

I was wondering if anyone here uses CLU on their CPU? I'm going to be delidding my 3770k when it arrives using CLU, and was wondering if you could use it not only for the IHS, but for the paste between your CPU and cooler. Anyone think it would work fine with the Hyper 212 Evo? Only problem I see is people say it doesn't come off well with some coolers, and that wouldn't be a problem for me, but I'm upgrading to water cooling within 6 months and will have to remove it. Any ideas?

  1. That's cool laboratory stuff?

    It would work, but there's not really a point - the Hyper 212 EVO comes with stuff that'll work just fine.

    Just want to make sure I'm using high quality stuff, since it could be the difference between how hot my system runs. I could probably get away with using it for the layer between the CPU and 212, but I'm failry sure I'm going with the good stuff under the IHS after delidding.
  3. The difference between what comes with the EVO and any top end thermal paste will only be a matter of a couple of degrees.

    That being said, if you want good stuff that's non conductive, go with Artic MX-4.
