Last time I used AS5, it went fine. The system in question is still running fine 3 years later on the same application. Whatever problem you were having was not related to the quality of AS5. Sounds like you were using NT-H1 as that is exactly how that TIM behaves.i had as5 on a HD 7970 back in 2018ish, the temperatures would go up (like 5C iirc) after every 2 months or so, after every repasting it always went back to normal. But come on, who wants to repaste a card 4 times a year??
@LenneWould be nice to have a thread on indium and carbon thermal pads along with phase changing pads.
I've already made this request, but perhaps we can change the thread name to include thermal pads? Something like " The Official Thermal Interface Material thread "? That way we can discuss thermal pads without worry of being off-topic.
