My System Specs

Default Thermal Paste

Hey Dudes and Dudettes

Just want to informe you guys about Innovation Cooling 24Carrat Diamond Thermal Paste

i've bought it for the shits and giggles on NCIX,com and i've put it on my GTX 260

With OEM Paste and Heat Pads
under idle my GTX 260 GPU was average 45-46*C and PCB 38-39*C and under Gaming GPU 70-72*C and PCB 45-47*C ( With 40% Fans on Idle and Gaming )

Now with the IC 24Carrat Diamond Thermal Paste
under idle my GTX 260 GPU is average 36-37*C and PCB 31-32*C and under Gaming GPU 59-60*C and PCB 39-40*C ( With 40% Fans )

Now this Thermal Paste Is The lol

So if you are willing to Upgrade Thermal Paste.. Dig out 30$ For it on NCIX.com its Worth it..!

Yeah, the IC7 (which is just a smaller tube of IC24) I put on my GTX260 before it got whored around the BST here was amazing, I got over 10C off from load temps. It shows you that both IC7 is amazing, and that the stock stuff is horrible.

A pea-sized drop is way too much paste. You should only need about as much as the size of a rice grain.
