Gelid GC Extreme seems the best for me as it has a thinner feel like Arctic Silver 5 making application easy as pie (rare in the top performers), is safe for my mobo if I spill any, has no curing times and is clearly a top performer in the reviews.
Until you compare the thermal transfer capabilites of Liquid Metal Pro against even the leading thermal paste. It is quite significant. People just won't give it a try for some reason.Sounds like a contact problem or another anomaly. Test show that much deviation between TIMS is not the case.
That isn't my table. That is from the link in my post. I've been doing this for a LONG time. I know how to apply thermal pastes.You're own table shows a 1.5C difference between AS5 and Liquid Pro. Like I said before, you had something wrong when you applied AS5. But I should have said that all HIGH PERFORMANCE TIM is not ever a 10C difference.
You should probably read other reviews, not just the ones that tell you what you want to hear:
Liquid Pro didn't even make the top contenders here.
I had mentioned it in one of my posts much earlier on, but not in my previous post.I don't think you mentioned lapping and LMP in the same post. I cannot comment on lapping and then using LMP. Is there a review that actually laps first, and then tests?
I didn't mean you put the AS5 on wrong. It just sounded like there was something wrong to use another TIM and get a 10C decrease.
mix it up....probably should just wait until next time you need it, squeeze some out on a piece of paper, mix it up good with a toothpick or such and then use it right away, toss the rest, get a new tubeMy Artic Silver 5 has been in my drawer for years, and now its liquid has separated from the solids. How do I fix this problem? ....
