quick question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
getting ready to install a silver arrow onto my AMD CPU

the silver arrow directions instruct to apply thermal paste on BOTH the CPU surface AND the silver arrow head sink surface .

Is this a typo ? as I have been reading about thermal paste usage and it instructs to apply thermal paste to ONE surface only .

Recommendations ?

Thanks !

Bobby

I know usually you are supposed to use a pretty small amount, but I have never used what your using

Using on both CPU and HS would be too much.

Just a dab on the CPU should be adequate.

Its got a flat base, so there is no need to fill any pipe grooves.

that's what I was thinking to use the paste only on the CPU surface
as I have been told to much paste is just as bad if not worse as not enough paste.

Thanks !!
