Simply put, without thermal paste your CPU Cooler won't do much and as such will be working as hard as it can and your CPU temperature will stick rocket. Here at eTeknix we are trying to make your lives easier by letting you know which products are better and thermal compounds are today's item on the agenda. If you've recently seen the price of thermal compounds you might well be quite surprised as it is certainly not cheap with most manufacturers claiming you're paying for quality and who are you to argue when you probably have nothing to compare it with.
Our aim of today is to test a new thermal compound and see how it fares against a more favoured adversary. Then we will be able to give you an informed decision on which is better and if it is worth your money to buy a more expensive brand or not.
