Conductonought? Going for liquid metal? If so thats dangerous stuff if you do not apply correctly. I would do tons of research.

I just saw that it was the best rated. What do you recommend for really good thermal paste?

Really, the pre applied paste on the cooler will be sufficient.

He’s reusing it from another system, so he will have to replace the paste.

I'm a fan of the Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste. It's non-conductive too, so you don't have to be too cautious about it shorting your board out

  • Conductonaut is pretty good, but if you’re going to replace the AIO’s paste, go for Kryonaut (it’s just as good, if not better than the H100is stock paste, and liquid metal does funny things to copper, when it’s been used for an extended period of time)
  • Dropped 2 of the RF120s for ML120s (those fans can be controlled with the AIO’s software, and they’re better for static pressure)

Will all the fans be able to sync to the same color even though they’re different brands? thanks for the reply again haha

The ML120s will have to be controlled with Corsair Link, but the RFs should be able to be controlled with Corsair Link.

So you don't think the color will differ from brand to brand? Also do you think I might need to add on a better PSU if I add on this RGB Led Strip

Edit: I've just decided just to not go with the led strips, unless you know of a really good brand.

That LED strip will do fine, but it will be controlled independently (via it's controller)

Colour won't matter, it's just that the RFs and the MLs will have to be controlled with 2 different kinds of software.
