Thermal Paste Questions

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?

  1. 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.
  2. Yeah it's not a big deal.
  3. Yup, I've seen tests where they used mayonnaise for thermal paste and it worked just as well.
