Do anyone of you use the liquid metal thermal paste?

  • 4

Can you recommend it, are you satisfied with the cooling results?

Haven't used it, all I know is voids warranty. Some people over the internet love it

I used Arctic Silver in my build.  Don't recall reading anything about it voiding the warranty. Even Intel has a guide on how to apply thermal paste so I doubt they are voiding warranties.

I remember Arctic Silver did drop my temps by a few degrees Celcius vs the paste that came with the stock Intel fan.


Why does it void the warranty? Because of the risk of short circuit? This paste conducts electricity (should be applied carefully) and on average 2x better lowers the temperature of CPU (based on Internet reviews).

Ditto. Arctic silver I was always found better than the standard free out of the box gunk bundled with coolers.


Guys - AFAIK Arctic Silver is not the liquid metal thermal paste. I was rather thinking about products like Coollaboratory.


Liquid Metal DOES NOT void your warrnty.  If you spill it, or it leaks out and shorts soemthing then your not covered but it DOES NOT void your warranty in an Alienware system.  Umar and others have said this on live stream.  

I have used all sorts of thermal apste including LM, and on laptops at least, I have never had good luck.  Maybe it's a balancing game that I am just not playing right, or maybe I am just not good at appling LM, but I have always had far better results with ID Diamond.

Same as damaging the chip during cooler removal.

Yes, that is the stuff I use and have for a long time now.  It lasts longer then the overpriced Grizzly products IMO.  Obviously each person will have different experiences but LM did not work wonders for me at all, the traditional paste actually worked better.
