Intel Retail P4 3ghz 800FSB no thermal grease

Postby dbreaux on Wed Nov 26, 2003 7:23 pm

Is that standard for this new processor or is my package missing something? It does have the biggest heatsink I've ever seen.

Without the thermal grease, won't there be too much space betweeen the CPU and the heatsink? I thought that was the purpose of the thermal grease so that there would be better heat transference to the heatsink.

Unless Intel came out with a special heatsink.

Read the installation instructions. P4's with the 478 pin package can come with either thermal grease or a thermal pad attached to the bottom of the heatsink. I suspect most of the latest P4's have the thermal pad, including yours. Hence, no tube of grease is included.

Hi guys,
My P 4 also came without the thermal grease.It came with the thermal pad as said by cfitz.I think this is much easier than thermal grease method.But this system hampers overclocking by a little bit as heat transfer from the CPU to the heat sink is not as fast as the conventional thermal grease methods.Atleast these are my observations.
See ya guys later,

Yes, the Arctic silver is much better. I'm currently using Antec Silver (re-badged Arctic Silver II) thermal compound, but I just ordered some Arctic Silver Ceramique thermal compound. Theoretically, it's better than the ASII.

Good thing that they have free shipping on it, because I don't think anyone would pay shipping on something that small, I know I wouldn't.

I wish I'd known about this earlier; I had to pay shipping on my Arctic Silver Ceramique. BTW, how does the AS5 compare with the Ceramique regarding the CPU temperature?
