I am currently gathering the money for a minimal upgrade of my pc I do every summer.
Would this Artic silver work with my masscool heatsink fan ?
1. Newegg.com - Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - Thermal Compound / Grease
This is what I have in my pc at the moment:
New Masscool 8WT15-38 775 Heat Sink Fan to 3.6GHz - eBay (item 250397974852 end time Jul-27-09 01:52:22 PDT)
2. Also my celeron tempature has been steadily heating up to quickly, I think it has to do with masscools pregrease being on there now for 8 months.
Currently my celeron e1400 is at 51c and currently here it's 3:25am, during the day it reaches 63c if I don't have my fan blowing during the day.
Will artic silver work fine for my current heatsink and lower the tempature at a steady 38-43c ?
3. I had just looked gigabytes mobo under 54.00 half of them that people have gotten said they were DOA or not functioning properly.
I really would like a gigabyte mobo under 60.00 but they have been having some very badluck with some of theor mobo's.
I can't risk getting a DOA right now, trying to cough up 60.00 for the thermal grease and the board is hard enough.
I am considering another foxconn that "WILL
" over clock.
