arent any or very many machined(moving) parts that wear together inside a PC other than whats in a hard drive, and they dont have a break in period

Mainly for artic silver 5 since we all use it

Also CPU's and GPU's and memory have a break in period for overclocking, we OC as hard as soon as we get them, than a week later they OC more

horndude, they DO have a break in period, yeesh, it's mainly only in considering overclocking period not to mention like chris said AS5 does have a period of 200 hours or so until it reaches its final stage of 'goopness'
