    Correct Thermal Compound

    NPSXCI

      Boa noite.

       

      Gostaria de saber qual solução térmica adequada aplicar ao processador I5-3330,

      pois vejo muitas no mercado, só que algumas advertências quanto a composição da pasta

      ter de haver compatibilidade com um determinado tipo de metal ou não

      podendo ocasionar corrosões na superfície do cooler ou do processador em si

      quero dizer já vi compostos de ceramique, zinco, silicone, prata, até platina.

      *Qual a pasta utilizada pela intel que já veio no box desse processador, tudo que lembro que tem uma coloração cinza a cinza lunar.*

       

      Obrigada.

          Google Translate, from Portuguese:

           

          I wonder what proper thermal solution applied to the processor I5-3330,

          for I see many on the market, only a few warnings about the composition of the folder

          have to be compatible with a given type of metal or non-

          may cause corrosion in the cooler or the processor surface itself

          I mean ever seen compounds ceramique, zinc, silicon, silver, and platinum.

          * What is the folder used by Intel that has come in the box of this processor, all I remember having a lunar gray to gray. *

           

          (The translated to English word "folder", I assume must be the TIM or thermal paste used by Intel. I think "... composição da pasta" means the composition of the paste.)

           

          You need a standard aluminum oxide type of Thermal Interface Material (TIM). The metallic portion of the heat sink is made of aluminum, so any TIM that would corrode aluminum would should not be used.

           

          You do not need a special, expensive TIM for use with an i5-3330, and the Intel CPU cooler provided with that processor.

           

          Intel uses a high quality aluminum oxide based TIM made by Dow Corning. That TIM is not sold in small quantities to individuals like you and me.

           

          I have no idea what brands of TIM are sold where you live, but any of them that are not expensive will work fine.

            Muito obrigada parsec !

            Entendi, vai ajudar bastante a encontrar a pasta apropriada.

            Então, no Brasil as mais comuns, atualmente, são implastec, ArticS, AarticC , Santech, CoolerM, Tt, GelidS e genéricas.

            Obrigada novamente.
