    Skip the IC diamond, it rashes the CPU surface.
    I use the MX-4 now from now on.

    Is the "rashing" consistent with this? I wasn't very happy about this. I don't know if IC was on there before, not sure what was.

    If you look closely you can see where the grooves from the copper are permanently visible. This is after thoroughly soaking with Isopropyl Alchohol, and gently removing with a lint-free cloth soaked in Isopropyl.

    You do have to be careful removing the paste, a gentel touch will avoid most issues. The discoloration will not impact performance (and neither will scratches of the size caused either).

    That's right. Marring the surface is pretty difficult to avoid with this paste, but it's not exactly detrimental. Consequently, Gelid GC Extreme is about as efficient without the nano diamond particles that cause this scratching. I hear great things about coollaboratory's Liquid Ultra too, albeit it being conductive (and therefore more risky).

    It will also discolour the copper too (the liquid ultra), I use it on my own machine, not for everyone though (nor every heatsink design).

    btw is anyone having a fingerprint reader issue after the windows update? right now my windows hello is just very bugged, locked me out of the finger print scanner after 1 or 2 tries, has anyone dealt with this before?

    Thanks guys.

    As to the color discoloration, nothing a little ketchup won't clean ;)

    I have never had great success with the fingerprint reader, sometimes the driver seams to load and sometimes it doesn't.

    I AM happy to report that I'm running Star Wars Battlefront on ultra with ~80 FPS =D

    The MX4 is doing just fine. Keeps my idling below 50, never was before, and while running SWBF above, occasionally peaks into the low 80s, but stays high 70s pretty well.

    Are you running SWBF on 1080p?
