Thermal Paste, Hyper 212 Question. Plz Help

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just attempting to fit one of the Coolmaster hyper 212+ Units to my computer. Currently only running stock Intel cooler. Question is which is the best method for applying thermal paste? Should i apply on the Chip or the Cooler? And just a line or a blob? and is there any other advice i need in changing them out... Its a little daunting is all

Thanks in advance for your help it is appreciated

Everyone does it differently. I put a grain of rice sized dot of thermal paste on, then I put extremely small dots on the four corners of the chip. You can also get a credit card and spread out the thermal paste throught the whole chip.

lol but thats a rather large blob so if i used CC to spread evenly i assume i would not have to worry about applying it to the heat sink on cooler? I just have heard that to much and the wrong way is Bad

It doesn't make a huge difference anyway you do it, but I agree with Raiden, the line method might be the better choice.

one of the best ways to do it is to actually apply it to the heatsink...
spread it with a CC, to get it in the nooks between the sink and the copper heat pipes, so you get a full contact across the entire chip.

I have a Hyper TX-3(Just like a 212+ but smaller). The best way that worked for me was to first fill the spaces in between the heatpipes and block with thermal paste. Then make a thin layer of paste on the CPU. Good luck!

I would use the pea method in the middle of the CPU, since about 80% of the heat coming from the CPU is in the middle. I don't know why people use the spread method, its the worst out of them all. Clearly shown in this video

This won't work with the 212+ because the 212+ has spaces between the heatpipes and block.
