AS5 temps worse than stock - Page 2

post #11 of 40
How much did you use? Only use a very thin coat. If you use too much the heat will not transfer properly to the block. So in this case less is better.

double check the clips. They are very hard to get clipped right (four clips around the sides)

When applying the AS5, I put a drop in the center of the cpu, put the heatsink on top of it, twisted it a little like Artic Silver said, and clamped it to the mobo. Should I spread it around, or is the way i did it fine?

I heard them all click
That is the reason I had to reseat it, because one core was always a little warmer than the other. So i pulled of the HS and found that the pase on one side of the chip was dried and crusty and the other was fine. But when i reseated it this time, i heard all the clips click.
