    Lightbulb Got the AS5 slapped on...

    Replaced my heatsink a week ago - got temps down from 60 (65 peak) to about 50ish.

    After a week temps were back up to about 60. I decided my Arctic Silver 2 was a tad old and was separating a bit with age.

    Today arrived my tube (if you can call it that) of AS5. I've put it on, and temps are now about 45 in warm weather (41 now but it's a bit cooler.)

    Ch Ch Cheeeeers!

    It probably won't make quite as big a difference against a thermal compound that hasn't "gone off" so to speak. Still, I'm impressed.
