i realised the biggest temp difference was from stock paste and the Chill Factor paste included with my Thermalright heatsinks. the ICD7 further improved temperatures, esepcially load temps. the different between ICD7 and Chill Factor wasn't as great as stock to Chill Factor, but nonetheless, it's still better :thup:

if anybody else is interesetd in the ICD7 giveaway give me a PM and i'll get you going :thup:

I think most people around here would consider 6C a big difference on load!

Another nice result for ICD7. I really like that paste and have bought 3 tubes, but the only thing I don't like is that it kind of rubs off some of the metal of the IHS. So if you had a CPU you wanted to resell, you'd have to do so without some markings or no markings on the IHS, which is :(

I think I'm going to switch to MX-3 for a paste, and then Indigo Xtreme when I have my setup finalized. (Going to build a new 1366 i7 system :))
