    Hi,

    I recently bought an overclocked bundle from OC to be the basic for my new PC build.

    The CPU is a MD Phenom II X2 Dual Core 550 3.10GHz @ 3.60GHz, and part of the bundle was a Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro.

    Could someone confirm that the thermal compound already on the 64 Pro is MX-2, and that this will be sufficient for the overclocked CPU, (or should I remove it and use something better ?)

    Many thanks

    If it's like the Intel version of the Freezer 7 Pro, it comes with MX-2 pre applied, and it's VERY good thermal paste.

    Best just keep it on.
