I wiped off the original TIM and then replaced it with Artic Silver to see how much of a difference a change of TIM would make.
Before removing the IHS the temperature was 79 degrees and now the temperature is down to 71
but it should be much better cz theoretically the performance of the Arctic Silver should improve after the 48 hours are up!
and the benchmarking was done under different ambient air temperature
today was 3 degrees Celsius hotter than my first test with the original TIM
here is the v├:banana:deo ,its about how to remove and tests with better grease than original TIM
(its portuguese ,if you guys only want to watch the end of the test jump to 9:00)
before removing the IHS
3770k at 4500MHz @ 1.15v with original TIM - room temp at 25c
max temp -> 79c
and after removing the IHS and replaced the original TIM for Artic Silver
3770k at 4500MHz @ 1.15v with Artic Silver - room temp at 28c
max temp -> 71c
