    Xigmatek HDT-S963 (H.D.T.) thermal paste?


    I've been recommended the Xigmatek HDT-S963 (H.D.T.) 92mm PWM Fan 3x Heat-pipe LGA775/K8/AM2 Cpu cooler over the Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro V2 (in thread, so I just wanted to know if this comes with sufficient thermal paste? I believe the Arctic Cooling one comes with it pre-applied, so just need to know if I need to buy some, and what people would recommend?

    Thanks a lot,

    Re: Xigmatek HDT-S963 (H.D.T.) thermal paste?

    Jonathan just addressed this in my reply in your other thread, it does come with some paste in a satchet apply ing from a tube/syringe is easier so getting some other paste is probably not a bad idea.

    Arctic Cooling MX-2 is good £4 a tube or the Xigmatek cooler, a tube of paste and a northbridge cooler is the MixIt bundle on Today only for ~£17.60 (~£1 more than the cooler on its own.)
