I discovered that my actual thermal grease its actually a total crap, i read in the especs that its thermal transfer its of 0.92 w/m.k (silicone 340, from drow corning) then i compared with the artic silver 5 and it has a 8.7 w/m.k then i rushed to order one but i wont have it untill thuesday, my procesor idles at 34-37c my room its kinda warm when the air conditioner its off.
how much can i expect my temperature to drop using artic silver 5.
btw im using Qx9650 at stock speed, with a ThermalTake V1.
Would i be able to Overclock when i apply the articl silver 5?
thx in advance

You won't notice much of a drop, may be 1-5C.
i would be happy if it drop 5c less, but relally mya ctual thermal grease its a total crap only 0.92 while artic silver has 8.7 i think im hopping it to fall even more than 5c, what do u think =/
