Evercool Cruise Missile
Thermal grease, thermal paste, thermal compound, thermal interface material. Wow…..grey gunk by any other name is still the stuff you slap between your CPU and heatsink to prevent it from burning up. Whatever you want to call it, the fact of the matter is it’s necessary. Ironically though, it’s so cheap, yet keeps your fancy, expensive processor from ended up a funkly little paperweight.
Poor thermal compound can sideline any system, especially the more powerful ones. Ever try run a CPU without a heatsink installed? Or without any thermal compound? Let me tell you that it’s interesting stuff, but you have to be brave and keep a quick hand on the power supply because the chip gets awfully hot very quickly. When fighting for higher overclocks on your CPU, every degree of temperature drop counts.
Today we look at the Evercool Cruise Missile thermal compound as we apply it to a highly overclocked Core i7 beast. Let’s see how it goes.
