Hi guys. As pretty much what the title says, what is the best thermal compound for the Corsair H100i? I'm gonna be remounting it pretty soon and I just wanted to know.

Thanks in advance!

But are those good for a closed loop water cooler? What I mean is, is there a more specialized thing for that or are they all the same?

what thermal compound you get is your preference (stuff mentioned by patrick is really good any of those will work wonderfully) what matters is HOW you apply the thermal paste. for a closed loop heat-sink (well all heat-sinks in general) the best method that I use (and considered the best by hardware secrets and toms hardware) is to apply the thermal paste as a small dot about the size of a BB pellet in the dead center of the processor. good luck with the remount :)

Agreed, just make sure when you put the cooler on to get it right, because if you have to lift up after touching the thermal paste you will have to redo it all over again
