Thread: Some questions about CPU Cooler

  1. #1

    Default Some questions about CPU Cooler

    I have a Coolermaster Hyper 212x cpu cooler. I actually bought this based on suggestions from friends. I have little knowledge about cpu coolers so I'm gonna ask some questions to you experts. Please help me clear up my confusions.

    1. One of my friend told me that the thermal paste that comes with this cooler has an expire date. After that I have to buy a new one even if I have plenty of thermal paste left. Is this true?

    2. Can I use non branded usual thermal paste instead of the one that came from Coolermaster with this cooler?

    3. What's the best method for applying thermal paste in this cooler? I applied Line method which i found from random website but can I use Pea method?

    4. I don't overclock my cpu. So do I need this cooler or stock cooler is fine? My cpu is i5 3470.

    if u dont oc u wont need aftermarket but ............212x like budget unit is great .keep it .

    yes thermal paste....is important .........u can use any paste starting from 20tk ? ......u knw what i mean but obviously costly ones gonna perform better ....... dont really think abt expiry date .....alright ? ...................

    best method is pea method .....not line ... use youtube to knw more if feel like to .

    1)Thermal paste is usually effective for 2 years. Then, it's thermal conductivity decreases.
    2) Of course you can use non-branded thermal grease. But grease which have better thermal conductivity are of course better and more expensive. Since, you use an i5-3470 at stock clock-speed, so, non-branded thermal paste( or better to say, that thermal grease with low thermal conductivity) is enough
    3) The application method depends on the cooler itself. Check this http://archive.benchmarkreviews.com/...d=170&Itemid=1 for details.
    4) Stock cooler is enough for an i5-3470 at stock clock-speed, though I always prefer using an aftermarket cpu cooler whether you overclock it or not. And since, cpu coolers are compatible with almost any current CPU socket (even the future sockets since there's little change to the physical dimension of Intel or AMD's cpu socket), you can consider it a one-time investment. Though after a few years, you might have to change it

    1) Yes, u need to worry about the expiry date of your thermal paste, amr tt tg3 chilo, amr cpu 32c but 5/6 mash pore jokhon choto bhai er pc te lagaisi tokhon dekhi 37c er niche namaite pari nai. tai best method hoilo paste kine use kore sathe sathe sell kore dawa.

    2) Non-branded paste niye amr bad experience ase, I would highly discourage you to use em, better get some from a friend or get the smallest sized tube of a branded paste.

    3) A. INTEL
    B. AMD

    4) Keep this.

    Theres no expire date written on the the tube. So whats the basic expire time for thermal paste? A month or a year? Also, from which shop I can get branded thermal paste and how much they cost?

    1. Hexisol, Safetysol or any other hand rub containing at least 70% of Iso-Prophyl Alchohol (Easy and Cheap Solution, Pharmacy te pawa jai)
    2. Artic Silver ArtiClean Thermal Material remover & Surface Purifier (Bd te pawa jai na, daam o onek)

    NOP. Use purified cotton or micro-fiber cloth which doesn't leave residue. Never use tissue paper or raw cotton in this case.

    Sorry for bringing up an old thread of mine but didn't want to open a new thread for this. I have bought a Cooler Master E2 IC Essential Thermal Compund which is Gold. :/ I have no experience with gold thermal paste. Should I apply this with my Hyper 212x or buy a silver thermal paste instead? Is the gold thermal paste any good?

    Few months back I was reading a benchmarks showdown between different Thermal Pastes and it had two contenders I was surprised to see LIPSTICK and TOOTH PASTE. So guys anyone have any idea what happened over there?

    yah i read that article too. they experimented with lots of materials. even body lotion. some of these results were surprisingly better than branded pastes.

    anyway, i applied the thermal paste. so far no problem. no improvement either.
