Conclusion :

See the result, THE WINNER is………………………………. OCZ Freeze !!! Only with money Rp.80.000, we will get a thermal paste with good quality for best cooling solution at our PC. The result gotten tight competes with the rival that’s Thermaltake. When OCZ Freeze tested on overclocked system, it is also ready to damp temperature yielded, far exceeds when using Intel thermal paste standart. But, the limitation in market, makes this American origin product difficult to be obtained in Indonesia. This thing is in order to become entering for OCZ distributor in providing this product for consumer.

The Thermal Paste Duel (part 1)

November 11, 2008

After you see the other reviews, you can to see a advantages of overclocking. But, not many people who knows, additional component needed to success of overclocking.

That’s a thermal paste or thermal grease, a component needed to maximizes cooling. As we know, temperature is an overclocking enemy, especially when we do processor overclocking. Besides required a good cooler component, like heatsinkfan, heatpipe , watercooler and Dry Ice Container (for extreme OC) , we also requires a thermal paste with good quality to get best result .

Function of thermal paste as catalyst media closes gap between temperature producer components ( cpu, vga gpu, or motherboard chipset ) with cooler component ( heatsinkFan ) from the air external to ensure temperature transfer works at ease. There is assorted of thermal paste sold in market. But, high quality thermal paste, usually made from good silicon material. Coincidently, I have 2 of thermal paste, Thermaltake and OCZ Freeze.

Wow…I’m surprised see this result. With a little tweaking, core clock and memory clock can be passed better VGA like 7900GTX. Price differences between both reach until $150 can be passed 5 minutes only. Sparkle of heatsink used very support to GPU temperature handled. The result, temperature only reach until 51 degrees celcius. Good job Sparkle Engineer…!!!

PROS :

- Cheap ($100 only for Big Perform)

- Very good performance

- Overclockable

- Cool chipset

- Good materials of heatsink

CONS:
