All the best Brett | Report abuse Reply to Brett928S2 Optimus_Toaster December 31, 2012 5:22:41 PM The thermal paste that comes with the noctua nh-d14 is some of the best around. And you get plenty enough if you need to refit the heatsink. | Report abuse Reply to Optimus_Toaster Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Does thermal paste matter?> Related ressources: ForumDoes brand of Thermal Compound matter ?
