Hello All,

I bought some IC Diamond 7 Thermal Paste today and i must say it has worked wonders for the Playstation 3! Its much quieter than it was with Artic Silver 5.

I have also applied it to the H50 in my PC. I put a pea sized blob in the middle and then fitted the pump allowing it to spread out under the pressure of the block. The problem is trying to get the pump locked into the bracket without touching the thermal paste before its secured propperly...has anyone got any tips how to install the H50 without ruining the thermal paste? I was thinking of taking the bracket off and fixing it to the pump first, offer it up to the board and screw it down whilst applying pressure but its a mission. Especially as i dont have room to lay my pc on its side to do the job!

Here are my temps in Prime95...do they look about right? i5 2500k @ 4.6ghz 1.328v

29,27,28,28 idle
