Has anyone used artic silver compound on a stock cpu air cooler for the I7?
If so did it drop the cpu down from the the stock compound?
I have my 920 blck set to 167 and dram to 1339mhz, running prime for an hour my temps hang out about 74c. I have some artic silver, I am going to swap the oem compound out for the silver in hopes to lose a few deg.
What should I use to clean off the oem compound? I have read to use a piece of platic like a knife to remove most of it and then use rubbing alcohol to remove any left over film. I know you can buy special cleaners for this, But no store around me has it and Im looking to do this tomorrow
