I have some MX-2 in my draw but it has been there for nearly a year now. Should I get some new stuff or will it be fine? If I do have to get some new stuff, which is the best? cheers More about : thermal paste jsc a c 197 K Overclocking December 9, 2010 6:32:20 AM I have some Arctic Silver AS5 that is more than two years old.

Get the answer sportsfanboy a b K Overclocking December 9, 2010 12:54:37 PM Yeah if it was closed properly it will be fine, I actually just did a re-seat will some old mx-2 and it was fine. I had some stuff towards the tip that congealed, all I did was remove that little bit at the top and the rest in the tube was fine. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
