Question about CoolLaboratory LIQUID ULTRA

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

i have a question about this thermal grease. Is it possible to use this in conjunction with the cooling solution of the M18x R2? ...keyword aluminium...?!

What do u think about it? Is it possible to use it without any problems?

kind regards

I used it recently on my 675mx upgrade with a 75watt 660m heatsink. The m18x's heatsinks are aluminium with copper bases, in other words the part that contacts the core is copper so there's no worry of corrosion.

Does pretty good job considering I'm not even using the correct heatsink, never gets above 75c. Nothing to write home about but not bad either.

Pro tip: you only need the tiniest, teenie tiniest drop. I mean tiny, this stuff seems to grow when you spread it out! When you put the heatsink back on it also seems to "vacuum suck" itself to the heatsink, strange stuff.

Edit: Practically impossible to remove excess, so get it right the first time! :P

I have this thermal compound already used very often, I was just not quite sure about the material of the cooler in R2. I will test it once, thank you: D

What are you guys using to remove it? Does it come off with alcohol like other pastes?

Alcohol won't do anything on this, it's a liquid metal alloy after all and can't just be dissolved. All you can do is wipe it off, but if you put it on an IHS there will always be a rest, you can clean it pretty good with the included cleaning set, but it makes the writing on the IHS unreadable in most cases... so good bye warranty.

But the performance is really good.

Ok yeah definitely not for me. I'll stick with mx4.

yeah I can't get the stuff off other than sanding, which is OK for the heatsink, but probably a bad idea for the CPU die.
