Thermal Paste Questions Tags: New Build Antec Thermal Compound Systems Last response: June 27, 2012 8:18 PM in Systems Share lackofrespect June 27, 2012 3:47:23 PM How much does the type of Thermal Paste matter? I have some Antec 6 Thermal Paste that I had planned to use to repair some xbox 360s and PS3s. Will that be good enough for an i7-2600k? If not, what should I be looking for? Thanks More about : thermal paste questions eddieroolz June 27, 2012 3:57:30 PM They advertise some "extreme" thermal pastes, but frankly the difference is perhaps 1-3C at most compared to "regular" pastes like MX-4. I personally use the MX-4 for my i5-3750K. It's currently stock, but paired to a Corsair H80 it's running 2C above room temperature. m 0 l FinneousPJ June 27, 2012 4:20:04 PM Yeah it's not a big deal. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
