While you're on the river trip you can think about how you're gonna be getting that processor to at least run at 3.1 Ghz.

I was going to ask the same thing. If he's getting the AF7 Pro there was no need to get the ceramique IMHO.

If you buy an AF7 is good to also buy a AS5 ?

Or there is no need?

No need. AF7 Pro comes with an MX-1 Thermal Pad which is better than AS5.

exactly, as5 is only recommened since it is so easy to apply/remove if upgrading all the time. there is far better pads/pastes mx-1 being one of them. refer to the battle of thermal pastes thread

Lol, If what they said is true then I said yes.
Anyway is good to have some extra paste just in case anything comes up, or you build a future rig or something .

(Good thing I ask cuz I was going to buy some AS5 along with the AF7.)

Having extra paste is never a bad thing. However, its not needed if you get the AF7 Pro
