    Great video! Possibility of some future videos to compare the gelid against some other thermal paste would be really awesome. IC diamond is one I have used in the past with great success.

    Because of this video i bought gelid. I used arctic mx4 since it existed.
    I tested them with several water and air cooled setups.
    I am still not sure if there is any difference at all.
    My biggest changes came from changing the cooler and mounting pressure.
    You can't see with your eyes wether a a cooler is perfectly seated.

    I currently use Noctua NT-H1 but when it runs out I'm probably going to use this stuff. Funny thing is, I researched this a few months back and decided that GC Extreme is one of the best options besides liquid metal. Also this video reminded me that I need to change the thermal paste on my 980ti lol.

    Never believed there's much difference in thermal paste performance. Been holding to that for at least 15 years. AS people are drinking the bs kool aid, now another brand of kool aid.

    So I have used my Gelid Solutions GC Extreme on 3 of my machines for the last month, and there is absolutely no difference in temperatures with this thermal paste and the Arctic MX-4 I have been using previously. I don't know why some report those great temperature differences because I've been using both thermal pastes on core i5 3470, core i7 3770, core i7 6900k and phenom II X4 955 – no differences what so ever. Actually the Deepcool Z3 I have does a bit better than GC Extreme.

    I came here to get your advice and I found it. "Don't use the pea method" I will only spread from now on.

    A lot of test show the different between gelid gc extreme and mx-4 is to 3°C even on OC 5820K in 70s temps.And u want to tell me that 1070ti OC what have maybe same conpsumption as this OCed cpu is 8°C cooler +higher OC.I DONT BELIEVE THIS, SOMETHING IS JUST WRONG!!!I didnt found results like yours.I give u disslike for first time.

    Silver 5 is old as fuck, there is better stuff out there people… Its good if your doing ln2, isnt as susceptible to crack when extremely cold. I personally use thermal griz for most of my stuff or dim nano for cheaper stuff. Works well for what I do. Liquid metal is good if your never going to remove the cooler. I have seen plenty of people put way to much liquid metal… Its not supposed to have a mirror finish… It can run if hit hard enough, but if properly applied the surface tension is more than enough to keep it in place…

    I saw a recent vid of a thin film of Graphene or Graphite being used instead of paste. Wish I could remember the reviewer. Never dries out. Does not bleed everywhere. Electrically conductive, yes, but once in place no problem. Cut to size. Seemed to work very well.

    Because of this video I bought a couple tubes of GELID GC Extreme. I was already using Arctic MX4 so I turned on Far Cry 5 and played for an hour. Hardware monitor said my GPU temp was 78C max with fan speed of 3037 RPM max.

    Using the GELID GC Extreme, same game for an hour. Hardware monitor said my GPU temp was 72C max with fan speed of 2207 RPM max. So my GPU is 6 degree cooler and the fan speed is 830 RPM lower in this case.
    Glad you did this video.

    I'm using MX-4 on my 8700K @5.0Ghz. while the temps are not bad, they are not great either. I've always chalked it up to the silicon lottery, like you said yourself, because I have to push nearly 1.4v to get that 5Ghz.

    I was stable for a long time at 1.385v after I built my system, but that was in October when the temps were cooler. Now it's summer time in Vegas to my ambient temps are higher. My CPU temps under my normal usage loads are still fine, mid to upper 60s on a 280mm AiO. But that 1.385v was no longer stable after the temps started to come up.

    I want to try this Gelid now and see how it performs for me.

    This is what I'm using on my CPU and works really well. I now think I will put some on my GPU to see what difference it makes.

    Dude! This video confirmed a lot of my suspections, I bought some MX4 and I've been experiencing really not great temps on my i7 4700MQ laptop with a light overclock. I have heard of Gelid GC Extreme from a professional overclocker, but I didn't think much of it, but now I will give it a try.

    Also yes! Death to the pea method, I dropped the temps on my 3960X by 5-10ºC by actually spreading the compound rather than using the pea method.

    I've been using arctic ceramique 2 for forever cause I got a 30 gram tube for like 7$ a few years ago and its just something extremely middle of the road that I'll always have lying around, and isn't nearly bad enough to make me consider getting a better paste

    Application also makes a difference. I favor the pea drop in middle approach. Mounting pressure also makes difference. W/mk values is just part of the story.

    I went from mx-4 to Kryonaught and dropped 8c on a 3770k @4.6. Will not use another TIM.

    I just successfully put conductanaut on my r9 280. I had saved some liquid metal for future gpus that where insanely hot and this stuff is really amazing

    I went for arctic mx-2 because I got it for around US $2.50-ish during an online sale

    bought gelid extreme and replaced my mx4 on my 8700k @4.3, i dropped 5-10 degrees , was idling around 50 now high 30s to low 40s , gaming in the 60s mainly with spikes in the 70s with the mx4 , now gaming in the 50s mainly to low 60s , i was skeptic about thermal paste in the past but i now recommend high quality like gelid or kryonaut if your overclocking or just want to bring down temps

    If u want comparison check out a toms hardware review i found. (german site) google for:
    Das große Wärmeleitpasten-Tutorial mit 85 getesteten Pasten (2017)
    They have luftkühlung große (big air cooler)
    They have Grafikkarten Kühlung (Gpu cooling)
