Thermal paste query (Picture)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, quick post from my phone.

Did I use too much or too little paste? Sadly the motherboard died (unrelated) so I can't just simply test frown.gif

Looks fine. How did you apply it? Line, dot, x, or spread? Or something else?

Looks fine, enough to just barely meet the edges. Although a little more uniformity could be good (i like to use a thin line not a dot).

Thanks, it was a rice sized line.

I asked because I was having some heat issues. 4.5GHz would result in instantly loading to 100C.

4.2Ghz could not stay in turbo, once the cores hit mid 70s it would drop back down to its non turbo clocks.

I may just sell the chip since my motherboard is dead and is getting refunded. Really unsure what to buy next.

Whats that on stock cooler? My setup i load at only 60c, 1.3v too. It's good chip what would you replace it with?

It was on a Alpenföhn K2 Mount Doom, perhaps defective frown.gif I bought it was a "open box" item that somebody had returned.
