Hi all,

I have an old gaming oriented machine that has a core2duo E4500. I often overclock it from 2.2 to 2.6 GHz but it seems that recently it has been heating up till till 70degrees C. I cleaned up the cooler(stock Intel) and found that my last application of thermal paste has dried out. Could you please suggest a good value for money thermal paste costing around 500 or less, preferably available online? If there's a good shop in West Delhi(near Patel Nagar) I wouldn't mind going to the shop to buy it as well.

Thanks! :)

Intel Q8400 running at 55c under load with stock cooler of Pentium D930 :D and gpu [ hd6850 ] used shoot upto ~97c under load [ used some Hylanze TiM before which is no good in cooling gpu chips ] and now it's ~68c under load and Deepcool Z5 is better than Z9 though the later is costly.

Thanks! Is it better than the white coolermaster value paste? I think I had that on last time.
Also, is the deepcool Z5 electrically conductive?

Got the Z5 yesterday and applied it.

CPU temps dropped from 85* C at load to 70* C.

GPU temps at 65* C.

Haven't checked idle temps.
