MSI pro application.
No wonder my MSi GTX 1080 Gaming X Plus was getting hot if that's how they slap it on. Would love to know what crap paste they use. It was like this after 12 months use and Temos were always too high since new.
I guess we can be sure they'll never use anything electrically conductive with that generous application method...
Can't believe this thread doesn't include a reference to the greatest paste test ever done:
This was done in lab conditions, using a cpu simulator. Even though this was written in 2002 (I remember it coming out!), I'm unconvinced that the choice of paste is something to be concerned about.
Fascinating read, would love to see results compared with Thermal Grizzly products, which was considering purchasing. Interestingly I still have AS5 from my last build - I just presumed the technology had moved on, but maybe its a winning formula!
