I haven't really researched CLC cooling and I'm not sure whether I should use thermal paste in it. Gaben pls.
... Who the heck is this "Gaben" people keep referencing?
You have to use thermal paste. Otherwise the heat will not transfer properly to the heatsink (AIO/CLC still have a heatsink; instead of air, the coolant flows through it) from the CPU and you'll either see really poor performance as the CPU throttles itself to stay alive or, worst case, you ruin the CPU.
The Corsair H60 comes with some thermal paste pre-applied to the heatsink. That means you don't need to buy any or apply any and just need to be a bit more careful when installing it.
Aside: There are better coolers than the Corsair H60...
Didn't know that...
Though... Is the guy running some cult on the side or something? Seems a bit... worship-y to see him praised/called upon... (Yea yea, Steam could be a Cult in and of itself...)
It's a joke created by the members of reddit.com/r/pcmasterrace
Ah, so it is a cult... :P
Yea, never really go over to reddit, so in-jokes are out of my knowledge...
not a cult... a joke.
We "worship" him because of steam sales.
probably the best thing about the H60 is the pre-applied thermal paste "shin etsu"....... but as FH100 said if you haven't bought it for cheaper price you can get an air cooler like the cryorig H7 which will perform better...
