“One of the main things when ether building a new high end system or trying to make your current system run cooler is good thermal paste. There are a ton of brands out there with many different ones to choose from, ranging from just basic paste to thermal paste made out of crushed diamonds. Choosing the best thermal paste will allow you to run your computer cooler and for the overclockers to be able to push the CPU further while allowing the processor and the cooler or water cooling to do its job. Today we will be testing out the Arctic Cooling Arctic MX-4 Thermal Paste."

"Already knowing that I am limited by the stepping of my processor in its inability to hit 4GHz 24hr stable, I decided instead to opt for as quick and simple of an overclock as possible. I throttled the base clock to 180 and set the multiplier to 21 and left everything else on auto. The RIIE performed like a champ and set proper voltages throughout! That is completely amazing for someone looking to get into overclocking, since, as I showed before, you can just go in to the BIOS and see what settings the board is using to be stable and go on tweaking from there; what a great way for people to learn."
