    Hi TechpowerUP!!!!!!
    Some of you probably know, that i killed my AMD Athlon2400+.:eek:

    Well i hade no Computer for 2 Weeks!!!!!!! :cry:
    Now i got a AMDAthlon 2600+ with a 3-Pin Copper base cooler made by "ULTRA".

    But before im gonna start, i wanted to ask:

    I have 3 different thermal compounds lieing arround:

    1. A little AS Ceramique
    2. A whole tube of VIO Thermal Compound
    3. "Hatsink Compounds" made by "fanner" (www.fanner.com)

    I dont know the differences between them.
    Maybe u people here know, what the best one out of this collection is.

    And one more thing:
    Is there any difference between my old AMD2400+ (2GHz) and the 2600+ (2.13GHz) ?

    Thanks for reading.

    The difference would be negligible. Enjoy the new proc. :)

    the difference is .13GHz. :laugh:

    I like Ceramique, but you probably won't notice too much of a difference.

    Using the ceramique, you can just spread a very thin layer right on the CPU with your finger in a plastic bag. You might be able to do it with the other thermal compounds, I'm just not sure on their consistency.
