So i purchased a thermal compound this one: Arctic
It seemed to me after applying this compound and this is after a day and a half, that temps were bit higher then before i reapplied compound.Averaging now at 34-40 Celsius,this is under no load.
Before the reapply with old original grease temps were around 31-34 celsius.
I know some compounds take time to break in,this product says only 24 hours or so.
To me after removing the heatsink re seating with the old compound you would figure it would be hotter then applying a new compound.
Although some would say 34-40 celsius is not too hot.It was cooler when i just re seated it without new compound.Unless it needs more breakin time.
I even added a 2nd Noctua case fan, i had one Noctua case fan already.
I hope someone can advise me more on this,would be much appreciated.TY
