M0? No....not at all. But I think I know what you are talking about since his G0 was having temerature issues according to the readouts in Coretemp. The temperatures were WAY wrong and it was pretty apparent.

After a bit of troubleshooting, we found that Core Temp was conflicting with his temperature readings. He updated the BIOS and downloaded the 0.95.4 version of Core Temp. That brought up the temperatures to what is expected of this CPU on a Noctua heatsink.

So, in short we went through the process of troubleshooting for what was probably a day or two in order to iron out the issues we where having.

I will tell you this right now though: there was a long period of time where Hardware Canucks was not doing thermal testing with CPUs due to problems with two reviewers' CPUs throwing out bogus temperature readings.

My System Specs


my goodness! I'm astounded that you used the OCZ 5 vs. the AS5, being the AS5 is what everyone knows...even if the OCZ 5 is rumored to be the same as the AS5.

aside from my astoundment, I'm glad to see this review! I can recall I posted a very similar review where the MX-2 beat most of the other thermal pastes by 1 or 2 degrees and SKYMTL criticized it, complaining about something like you can't really test thermal pastes and that the the temperature difference was within the mark of error.

guess this proves without a doubt that the MX-2 is the superior, like that one test ages ago showed.

good job Dr. Silver!

i just bought a tube of this stuff (should arrive in the mail mid next week). you'll hate hearing what i've been using thus far....

thermalloy! the big yellow tube that i've had for years and used on regular electronics. still have around 20mL of it in a tiny jar.
Nothing's out there. All there is is sea, and birds, and fish. And 20,000 tonnes of crude oil. And a fire. And the part of the ship that the front fell off. But there's nothing else out there - it's a complete void. The environment's perfectly safe.
