We were obviously getting decent contact since the CPU core temperatures were still simply fantastic, however it should not have been enough. About a month in the past, we mentioned on a Twitter publish that we have been wanting into using graphite pads as an alternative of thermal paste on our CPUs.
We use 30g tubes of Arctic Cooling MX-2 which is about $15 and lasts for no less than 50 purposes. Graphite pads are $10 every if you purchase the pre-reduce stuff that is 'designed' to make use of on CPUs. Or, should you buy it in big sheets and cut it down, it gets nearer to $1 per piece.

We change CPUs lots in Puget Labs, however have gone back to thermal paste because of the difficulty described above. sure however a 'lab' has expertise in placing thermal paste, you don't need graphite pads. So if the graphite pad lasts 4 CPUs, it about breaks even with the thermal paste by way of value.
If value is an element for you, thermal paste is one hundred% the best way to go. We had been simply hoping that we could pay a bit extra and save on the mess and fuss of paste. Honestly, the fee is pretty negligible both way (no less than for us buying in bulk).
This hasn't utterly soiled the concept of graphite pads to us since we could simply replace the pad on every CPU swap. However, in many ways it's easier to have an enormous tube of thermal paste rather than a stack of graphite pads since with the pads you need to make sure they keep relatively clean and free from dust. On the other hand, it might be much easier to easily send alongside a graphite pad somewhat than a tube of thermal paste to a buyer within the subject who needs/needs to do a CPU reseat, replacement, or upgrade. So, in the meanwhile, we are nonetheless somewhat on the fence about which is best.
