    I saw an excellent test of about 16 thermal pastes. The difference in the top 8 was about 3C. The difference between the best and worst was maybe 6C. So where does this 25 drop in temps come from?

    It's actually up to 25c but depending on cooling it varies a set up like Mike's ,Doorules will see drops like that us Corsair and other closed loop users maybe 15-20c

    Hi,
    Yeah the EK-280 is working well
    Compared to my x99 and H110i GT the EK is 10-15c cooler same room temp
    Still on the original corsair thermal paste it came with though might be time to change it :/

    Wait a minute are you saying you never cleaned the paste and just slapped the new block on (SAVAGE)

    Tommy, I know you said Mike wasn't real smart, but I think he knows better than that.

    I was joking with him because he was saying he was still using the original paste from the 110 that is still installed i just made it seem like he did it with the EK block simple twist of words lol

    Hi,
    lol the EK paste wasn't pre-applied
    It's been over 2 years with the original corsair applied thermal paste
    It took a while to get it off the copper block dried tooth paste is pretty accurate I might add with a tough residue
    Temps are pretty much the same @32c and the EK is hovering around 25c both at stock speeds.
    I had the x99 going at x46 as last oc bench showed is why there was such a larger difference.

    Not smart
    When he say that

    I never used the paste that come on my corsair coolers and you use Thermal Grizzly time for your corsair to get some too

Thermal Paste Questions

What can I use instead of rubbing alcohol to remove thermal paste?
Is it absolutely necessary to use rubbing (isopropyl alcohol)? Can't I just use a wipe/napkin or something else? Is there any harm in just applying the new paste without removing the old one?
