    The manufacturer didn't advise the use of thermal paste,and I havn't used any.
    If you look at the "Aida" screen, you will observe that it is not necessary.The assembly is adequate

    Question:-
    In normal operating perameters what differences in temperature are recorded (a) using thermal paste
    (b) not using thermal paste.

    Question:-
    If there are differences, are those differences critical.

    If we are having problems with high temperatures, perhaps we are asking too much of the equipment we are using.

    theres just no talking to you is there? I prooved why ceramique is a necessity, and you still deny it.

    I'm done, maybe someone else will waste there time with you, but I definatly wont.

    Yeah, lol- even the space between the molecules of the metal is enough to warrant the use of some kind of thermal transferance material (paste, pad, whatever)-

    But they do get that mirror damn smooth---

    Wait a second- that's wrong-- they didn't say that using NOTHING btween the CPU and HSF is good- they said that the thermal pad they use is enough, correct? I'm still wondering what is in between your CPU and HSF-- pad or nothing?

    Plus- look at your mobo temp-- that's horrible!! Way to hot.. And yes, we ask too much from our hardware- that's the whole point I think-- get more for your money, push the limit, see what she'll do w/o bursting into flames-- that's the idea..


    I agree Craig- the patience we need to convince some peeps.....

    If you would like to see the system specs I can also offer those as well. Some sort of TIM is required by manufacturer... matters very little if it is a thermal pad (which sucks), white goop (which is better), or silver compound (which is best)...

    but some sort of TIM (Thermal Interface Material) is required.

    OTHERWISE YOU HAVE JUST VOIDED YOUR WARRANTY ;) I already have ... as I have overclocked my system.

    nice discussion going on here!! Medic has some valid points tbh, and I also understand what BWX is saying. I cant understand it though and have never used paste.

    d4rkz,

    Some kind of thermal interface material is NEEDED. It doesnt have to be paste (AKA Goop) it can be just the plain thermal pad that comes on the stock heatsink.

    Paste just works better.

    I've ordered the retail Barton CPU and it comes with h/sink and fan. Thats all I will be using, Im not gna go buy some paste/pads or anything. I dont see the point, especially if it will only alter 2 degrees!

    the stock heatsink should have already had a thermal pad installed (along with a plastic covering) just be sure that you removed that plastic covering before you installed the heatsink... also be sure that you installed the heatsink the correct direction.

    and finally, using a good quality paste will alter temps a LOT more than just 2 degrees. Especially if you are using a case with good ventilation... that is the key.

    ah well there we are, I';ve always used retail box sets which come with HFS. I've got 3 case exhaust fans on my case:

    Anyway, when I get the system I will sshot the temp to show you.

    That is where we differ... I never use stock anything, and if it enters my home... it WILL be overclocked ;)

    One right in the left side of the case blowing directly on the CPU Heatsink dramatically reduced the temps for me. One fan on top blowing out also does wonders for temps inside case.





    That explains the 65 degree CPU -lol

    This is a 1800+ Palamino @ 1700mhz and 1.8v (in bios) w/ AS Ceramique. Aida is reading it a little low. But temps are right on. See- thermal paste works better! Plus it's cheap, so I say, why not? :D

    DUDE! It isn't thermal adhesive, it's thermal paste!

    No wonder you guys are afraid to use paste- you don't know what it is...

    Thermal adhesive and thermal paste are two totally different things-
    thermal adhesive is like epoxy that conducts heat well, it comes in two separate tubes that when mixed, have a chemical reaction and harden-

    paste stays viscous, it does not harden and turn into epoxy...
