[AntecFormula6] How to apply on 965/H50?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Which method does OCN recommend for the layout of my thermal compound?

It will be put on my 965, and the H50 will be placed on top.

I thought I was suppose to let the cooler do all the spreading, and doesn't that cause air bubbles (I'm a nub, so just asking)?

Small rice grain or small BB size. Then just install the waterblock on top. No spreading.

this, because spreading causes air bubbles / pockets.

Go with the manufacturers suggestion on the compound. Some recommend the BB size and weight spread, others include a little plastic knife to spread it manually with or suggest that you do so with your own implements.
