Thermal paste for I7 4770K with Noctua NH-D14 cooler

So, i have a I7 4770K and i'm also about to buy a Noctua NH-D14 cooler for it but i was wondering what thermalpaste i should use. I Hear there are alot diffrent types that is better for high or loew pressure coolers or something like that.

I read it here:,3600.html

Any suggestions on what Thermal paste i should use, and does the D14 have high or low mounting pressure? (i think it's called mounting pressure, not sure.)

    The paste that comes with the noctua coolers is excellent. Use it.

    For the most part, different pastes do not make much of a significant difference anyway.
  3. The product should come with NH-T1, so you really should be set.
