    Heatsink mounted then re-mounted: would you re-apply thermal paste?

    I mounted a brand new Noctua nh-u12a (which arrived with some bent blades :rolleyes:) then realised I had put it the wrong way (it wasn't leaving much clearance for the ram) so I removed it, checked the thermal paste (no spill, spread evenly) and re-mounted it the right way. It didn't feel...

    Noctua NH-D14 stock fans vs Deepcool 140mm PWM?

    My NH-D14 came with NF-P12 and NF-P14 non PWM fans, but I barely used them. Instead I used two Deepcool UF-140 PWM fans. I think PWM is what won me over, but maybe I underestimated Noctua's tuning. Also, I think they're case fans, rather than tuned to high static pressure for heatsinks and...

    Cleaning heatsink

    Hi All, Quick question, I am not sure if this is already mentioned somewhere. I couldnt find it. I have the CPU fan below. COOLER MASTER MASTERLIQUID ML120R After using it for 8 months or so, I can see there is a little build up of dust in the heatsink inbetween the fans. I am guessing this...

    Vega 64 power on without heatsink

    Hello, So I just bought a Vega 64 from eBay for a pretty cheap price. I want to use it in a custom loop so it didn't come with a heatsink. Also I wanted to save some cash on shipping and customs. Anyway the card came in, and now I want to test it. I'm wondering if anyone ever tried to power it...

    Beginner Mistake Stock Thermal Paste

    While mounting the heat sink onto the cpu I stuck my finger right in the middle of the pre applied thermal paste circle leaving a nice fingerprint in the middle. I went ahead and mounted the heat sink as I haven’t bought any thermal paste yet. I know the stock thermal pastes aren’t great and I’d...
