My New Computer That Im Going To Build - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
Ok I finally recieved the basic parts to my computer the first thing I did was screw in the motherboard mounts. I got my Core 2 Duo Processor and the Arctic Silver 5 soulution, But I am afraid I am confused as ahow I should apply it. I went to the instructions and it is saying to apply isopropyl alcohol ove rthe het spreader for cleaning. As for the AS5 it is showing that I not only need to add it to the heatspreader of the cpu but to the bottom of the heatsink, Thiose with Core 2 Duos please help me out

Hehe. Hey dude, I just built a new gaming rig myself. Same proc but different mobo. As far as applying AS5, I just excrete four small amount to four corners of the cpu then spread it out evenly with my finger, making sure that it covers the whole cpu. What vid card are you getting?

My dad is helpingme out he doesnt think you have to add the AS5 because there is a thermal pad on onthe bottom of the heat sink

You don't have to if it's on the heatsink. People like to remove the thermal material from the heatsink and thus use the AS5.

I'm afraid I have to disagree with this statement. With dual core processors, it's actually advised to put a small vertical line straight down the center of the processor. Then spread it with a small piece of plastic or credit card (I cut a very small chunk of a container - like the plastic ones you get with memory), until the paste is a very thin, even layer. Get it almost as thin as possible without seeing through it. Oh, and make sure to mount the CPU on the motherboard first.

The idea that the pressure from the heatsink will spread the paste isn't totally a bad idea, but some heatsinks aren't completely flat, as with the IHS/CPU covers as well. If this is the case, it could cause an uneven or incomplete spread, which is not good. So I'd just do what I described above to make sure you are getting good coverage. I've always done it this way, and never had any problems.

Oh, and make sure there aren't any hairs or specks of dirt stuck in the paste before you put the heat sink on. If there are, carefully pick them out and re-smooth the paste.

And if you don't have a enough paste on, don't be afraid to apply a little more. Just make sure it's very thin. If you get too much on, no worries, you can scrape some off while smoothing it.

EDIT: Before you do all this, make sure you clean the processor off with some 90% pure (or higher) rubbing alcohol and a lint-free cloth. Q-tips can work, but sometimes leave fibers (especially the higher quality ones). I use a coffee filter, as it doesn't leave lint. Clean the mounting surface of the heat sink as well in the same fashion.

EDIT: Fixed dual core spread info above. (I was thinking of quads).

These are the beginning parts to my computer build
It says that the case comes with a temperature display. Does it read the case temperature or CPU temperature?
