    It's better than MX2 but kinda hard to apply. Got some Gelid Extreme on the 970 right now and it was much easier to apply.

    is it really solder? If so why :confused:
    how you like the MX-4? Is it worth the extra over the MX2?

    EDIT:I see i was late to the party and you already answered it :laugh:

    The MX4 I have is great, I use it for my cpu's only though. I hope to have enough TIM(not you ;) ) soon to do a thermal paste showdown. Need to get one or two others before I continue, mabye Noctua's or Thermaltake's. So far I have MX4, Gelid's Extreme, AS5, AS Cerimuque, and a couple other no-namers.

    OCZ Freeze Extreme is very nice too. Easy to apply (OCZ recommends to not smear it, BTW), no curing time, and cheap. The price varies much from store to store, however.

    hmmm try laptop fixit shops for Shin Etsu TIM don't go anywhere near that nano blue shit from Titan and that liquid metal stuff (complete rubish) ..... I used to use deepcools Silver TIM that worked ok until I ran out so I now use Gelid GC2 (couldn't find any Extreme) it works great but boy what a hassle it's thicker than George Bush jnr :shadedshu.... So it looks like I might be reading your review once it's done

    not true. liquid metal is, when correctly used, the best TIM you can get. especially the new version of phobya seems to be very good, it cools about 3c better than the best tim.

    i wouldnt use liquid metal anymore tho, too dangerous upon spill, and it likes to form a bond between the proc and the cooler, that only can be removed with a thick razor blade an a hammer:laugh:

    It may have improved since the last review I read about it then still not worth the hassle imagine the mess you'd make if you missed the razor blade how do you get an RMA with a hammer hole in the mobo ;)

    oh, for AMD you can simply unlock the lever, pull the cooler/block with the proc attached, if youre careful...i had to do that, and the chip still works today ;)
    on intel the problem will get more severe, especially because you have to remove the whole board to be able to work on it. you dont need much force with the hammer tho, but you need the hammer definetly :laugh:
