Closed Thermal Paste? Tags: CPUs Computers Thermal Compound Last response: February 22, 2012 11:31 PM in CPUs Share Asdfxdasdf February 22, 2012 4:05:28 PM So I'm new to building a computer and was wondering if I need to buy my own thermal paste or if it comes with it. Any recommendations on which one? I have a Intel Core i5-2500k. And a Radeon 6870, I'm not sure if im supposed to apply thermal paste to this also...

The HD6870 comes all assembled and no paste needed! | Report abuse Asdfxdasdf February 22, 2012 4:13:57 PM So if I do not have a cooler as part of my build, then I won't be needing thermal paste? | Report abuse rolli59 CPUs Master February 22, 2012 4:22:53 PM Box CPU comes with a Cooler with paste! | Report abuse Related ressources Overclocking after putting thermal paste - Forum Thermal Paste Removal/Installation Guide - Forum Thermal paste ? - Forum PC not turning on at all after applying thermal paste ! - Forum H100i Thermal paste questions - Forum Ask the community Publish Asdfxdasdf February 22, 2012 4:25:58 PM Best answer selected by asdfxdasdf. | Report abuse Asdfxdasdf February 22, 2012 4:26:02 PM thank you thank you | Report abuse Mousemonkey CPUs Authority February 22, 2012 11:31:56 PM This topic has been closed by Mousemonkey | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Thermal Paste?> Related ressources: ForumEasy alternative of thermal paste ForumNew GTX 660 comes in today, will i need to apply thermal paste ?
