This is the first time ive heard of tinting, cool I learned something new today thanks biggrin.gif

My experience with the pea method is that when it spreads after mounting it forms a circle leaving the outer edges of the IHS exposed. Does not seem like a really big deal as the die below is much smaller in size and most heat is centralized in the IHS. I used a credit card method on large IHS surfaces and its work flawless ... most times. For on die its just easier for me to drop ball on there and slap it together and works flawless... most times biggrin.gif I do lap the pump before installing but ill try this out also the next time I redo.

The credit card method traps air bubbles in the TIM. The method I use is the X method; it seems like it would spread the TIM out as evenly as possible on a square die.

He uses way too much TIM here, but it gets the point across.

More concerned about having the hassle of building a system with reservoir, extra pump etc instead of just slapping in the cooler/pump and rad of a CLC.

Exactly but you are talking about CPU with IHS. I'm actually concerned on the GPU dies WITHOUT an IHS which makes covering the whole die very very important in order to make full contact with the heatsink.

They talk about it in the AS5 application instructions as well. Probably see better results with an un-lapped setup but may make a difference in lapped surfaces as well. Just an idea I figured I'd throw out there.

So you do not do tinting on the heatsink, just on the CPU?

Yup, I just learned about this a few months back also. It indeed is fun to learn new things smile.gif

Love my mod. Thanks Dwood Using this antec 920 is awesome.Just have to figure out the cable setup. Is there any that already sleeved that would work with my XFX 1050w Black edition PSU?

If it doesn't have an IHS, just put enough on that it will spill out the sides a little.

Yeah but with what method?

Put a dot in the centre; it is hard to put little enough on the die to not completely cover it.

Where are you guys getting your sandpaper from for lapping the 620's? The highest I can find here is 1500grit at partsource down the road. Is that good enough? I'm waiting on Dwoods bracket and figured I may as well lap them while I'm waiting.

Should I lap the one I'm installing on my cpu as well?

I got mine at a nearest auto supply store. 3M/Wetordry automotive sandpaper.
