What do you have thermal paste on?

Unless you have a GPU or CPU without a heatsink, you're going to need it on both. This was a dumb topic.


Such a shocking revelation.

Is it a bad idea to put it on your GPU? I mean, you have to take off the current cooling. Doesn't that void the warranty?

How much difference does it actually make compared to what's on there already?

I bet you that u already have thermal compound on it.

Going from the worst paste to the best is only a few degrees difference, even household condiments as was joked about above work well enough until they dry out. Proper application makes a much bigger difference.

Some GPUs (And the PS3/360) use thermal pads instead of paste but if your gpu isn't overheating you've got one or the other already.

You don't even want to know what I do with it.

You have to have thermal paste on cpu and gpu regardless.
