You think it to thick? should I redo it with a razor, and should i apply it to the heatsink or the cpu?

To me they preapplied a layer too thick for my likings. I tried it and temps were high. So I removed the old stuff, used a dot of as5 and used the heatsink to spread. Then temps were noticeably different over stock cooling.

Remove the old gunk with some Isopropyl Alcohol and some q-tips. Then apply AS-5 with a razor or an old credit card.

Well after I applied AS5 I got worse temos than the stock thermal paste but that doesn't mean as5 is not good .It means I did not put the right amount. There is no way AS5 will be the same as stock. The only thermal paste that I could say is as good as AS5 is MX-1 that I used recently and had very good results.

I have heard the MX1 stuff is pretty good. I left it on my AC 64 with pretty good results.

If it was too thick, wouldn't it just squish out the extra when you clamped it down? I have not removed mine since I installed (I will in the future and see how well it spread).

MX-1 Thermal Compound is good t.i.m. but like pheoxs said if you have as5 use it, but don't buy it just to replace the mx-1

Now i dont know what to think, It did seem with my stock intel cooler that more paste was acctually better than a thin layer.

A thin layer for each person differs. I myself do not use it anymore cause it seems I was doing ti wro0ng. I use the dot method which you just apply a bit thermal place over the place when your CPU's die is and then twist it to spread it around. My thin layer method with AS5 gave me 10+C on idle and 22+C on full load than the dor method of MX-1 and again I did put more than I should so I will reapply sometime with less paste. Although just want to say that was MY thin layer. Again each person sees the thin layer from their own point o view.

with the AS5 a thin layer is all it takes because of its chemical compound and MX-1 which is Arctic Coolings thermal interface material is the same way, but if it does look really too thick a layer then yes replace it with the AS5, don't ever steer away from AS5. imo at least.
