Hey everyone, I am a pc-building newb and I am building my first PC in a few days (am waiting on a few more components from Newegg to arrive), and I was wondering if there is a drastic cooling difference in using the stock thermal paste of the hyper 212+ versus a more premium thermal paste such as Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound (with the hyper 212+). Thanks!
AC5 isn't the greatest anymore. There are much better option like OCZ Freeze, for example. My buddy just got a CM 212+ for his AMD 1055 X6. He has it overclocked to ~3.4GHz and it gives pretty low temps. AC5 is ok...OCZ Freeze is better.
