Best Thermal Paste compound to use on the i7 4790k
I have literally just brought my i7 4790k and MSI Gaming 5 motherboard from ebay (argos shop)
I was wondering can i still use thermal paste on this CPU but also if anyone has a recommendation for a good thermal paste compound to use?
I have used Arctic Silver thermal paste before and it did well with my 2700k, just want to know if there are any recommendation to use specifically with this cpu, due to its new thermal interface material.
Thanks all Nick

Arctic Silver 5 or any other quality thermal paste. The new thermal interface material refers between the heat transfers between the actual circuitry and the heat spreader.
Sorry i sounded stupid then i know its between the circuitry and the heat spreader, i meant more along the lines does the top of the CPU use a different material from previous chips, that might react badly to specific thermal pastes
