Stock thermal paste and oc?


I am going to oc my i7 but was wondering if the stock thermal paste on the hsf is good enough. In order to apply my arctic silver thermal paste must i peel off the strips from the hsf?

  1. Thanks.
    May aswell order in some AS ArctiClean and get it all off.
  2. I'd agree with ct1615

    I've oc'd from 2.8 to 3.33 with an i7 on stock paste... but if you plan on benching, or even if you just have the extra paste, i'd use it :P (better safe then sorry anyways ^^ )
