Overclockers are constantly looking for tweaks to implement in order to get the absolute highest clock speed out of their processor. One of the most inexpensive and easy ways to help get the maximum from your processor is to have the best thermal compound applied to it. Thermal compound is what you’ll find in between any processor and heatsink – it insures a direct connection, which allows you to get the best temperatures. Aftermarket thermal compound almost always does better than the stock thermal compound on heatsinks. But how much better? The lower the temperatures that you receive from having an aftermarket thermal compound applied to your CPU, the more room you’ll have to increase the clock speed and the volts applied to the processor.
