only if you want it to not melt.

and may i just add, what the hell kind of person buys a 975 without intent to overclock. you must be very rich, or very stupid. or both.

id go for both.

what the hell kind of person buys anything other than a 920 if they're intending to overclock? Unlocked multipliers just makes things more convenient.

The 975 is higher binned, and will usually overclock higher than a 920. Whether it goes enough higher to be worth it is a separate debate, but there are reasons to get something other than a 920 for overclocking.

he is not going to overclock.(at least, it doesn't look like it bu the post) so he has spent hundreds of extra dollars for overclocking potential he will not use.

He asked about both a non-overclocked situation and an overclocked one. From that, I would guess that he is considering overclocking, but hasn't decided yet.

My advice: Don't judge a book by the cover!
cjl IS right!

Everything has to have a perfect timing!

Check YOUR grammar first --> "Only if you want it NOT TO melt"!

Get a DEGREE first, an official one.
OCing, from my point of view, IS NOT only for playing GAMES.

Superlative computing IS much more important!

^^ what ARE you talking about?

You go from asking a fundamental question about using thermal compound or not to berating people on grammar, waving the concept of higher education around like it means something as if suddenly you're inferior if you're not degree educated.

Exactly what are you trying to achieve here? Do you want help, or just want to be a douche?

firstly, you don't even know what grammar is. my grammar was fine. you are criticizing my word placement, which was also fine. don't worry though, you've simply made yourself look like an idiot, and insulted people helping you.

id recommend never coming back to these forums again.
