    I've never heard of anyone putting a time frame on changing out TIM, but I normally do enough reviews of coolers that it doesn't stay on too long. I have had a couple of times, though, that I was able to use the same setup for about two months or so and I never had any problems. And using Arctic Silver, the paste still looked to be in good condition when I removed the heatsink.

    Artic Silver 3 is real good...and like Darth mentioned there really is no need to replace very often unless you got some nasty frag tape going on there...recommended to remove that and use the paste ...Artic seems best and one lil syringe will last you for quite a while.:thumb:

    The only significance that post count has is showing how many times you have posted. Thats it.

    It has nothing to do with how smart you are, how fast you are, what size shoes you wear, how much you make, etc. etc.

    As your posts are read, people get a feeling for the value of your suggestions / opinions, and the ONLY thing that can boost the opinions people have of you is your POST CONTENT. Going about thinking that post count is what people judge you on will get you nowhere. Post count is not something that should be shown with every post, if recorded at all.

    well the main reason i dig up old threads sometimes is cos i'm bored....and anyway i didn't even know this thread was old...maybe i should check the date eh?duh;)

    although it's nice having a big post number i honestly think bcoming a part of teh community and getting to know ppl is much more important...:p

    Old posts are great :thumb:

    And my post count comment wasn't directed at anyone specific, I was just commenting how futile anddissapointing it is to see someone posting for no reason other than increasing their count.

    I will probably change my avatar eventually, it is kind of distracting, and it kind of infers an agressive attitude that I don't want to portray with my posts.

    I have nothing against bringing old threads up...like Zeradul said himself "Old posts are fun". Makes you see how your opinions were a month ago to the ones now. I just made that comment towards posts because of the confidence i have with the people at TweakTown; in other words, it was joke. I do believe in content and Chis does have valueable things to say just like many other guys around the forum. Anyways keep up the good work guys and much love...and Zeradul why change the avatar?...you are one cool dude...just like posts amounts an avatar is a fun to have...and by your content you are a cool dude in my book.:thumb: : peace2:
