    Artic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro

    I'm about to start building my new E6600 based rig and I'm using the Freezer 7.

    I don't know what the thermal compound is, that's already on the Freezer, although, I'd expect it to be decent.

    Should I fit it 'as is', or clean off the compound and use something like Artic silver....?

    The freezer 7 has the MX-1 paste on it that some tests have shown works better than the silver with that heatsink. This wont always be the case, but the fact it is pre-applied means less hassle so just fit it with the preapplied stuff. it would only make a degree or two difference anyway and there is the potential for poor reapplication and getting air bubbles and stuff.

    Hi, Don't know what make-up the compound on the freezer 7 is but most people would clean it off and apply artic silver 5 as it is supposed to be the best there is.

    If you already have arctic silver, it wont do any harm if you clean the stock stuff off and use that, but if you dont have any, use the stock stuff.

    Thanks guys....you're quick tonight!

    Think I'll go with the stock paste....

    At heart, I'm lazy and, anyway, I believe Artic Cooling wouldn't be silly enough to sell an apparently excellent cooler with crap thermal compound applied......

    I've used both..pretty much the same results with both to be honest...save yourself the effort.

    Although now its bedding in the arctic silver is just a bit lower and better on full load.

    MX-1 is nigh on identical to AS5, I don't see the point in taking it off and then re-applying AS5. You really shouldn't see any difference in temps. And yes, I do have 2 tubes of AS5 next to me

    I used AS5 when i applied mine. But, in the box came a tube of stock stuff. When i apllied that instead my temps were no worse.

    Its MX-1 and its a bugger to get off. Works fairly decent although ive replaced mine, but that wasnt intentionally.
