Why doesnt Arctic Silver just make a thinner opening thingy?
you have to seal it

This should be stickied. So many people ask how to apply AS5 and so many people do it incorrectly.

This looks good....but it sure does waste a lot of AS5.....when the cylinder runs out the cone cap will contain a huge amount of it. I'd do it if I wasn't so cheap

Wow, thats quite a mod there. Im going to watercool the rig next week, and Ill be sure to use this method. Ive been using the stone age method of using a razor to cover the whole chip. Wow, guess I was way off on that one. Ill take some pics when I do, and let you know the idle/load difference.

Ok so I just performed the mod, took an easy 5 or 6 minutes I did a test squirt, and the line looks SUPER thin. I used the tip of a 5mm mechanical pencil. Is this how small it is supposed to be, or do I need to make the hole a little wider with a paper clip or something?

Make it a leeeetttlle wider. But not too much.

Also, with your Q6600, try regular AS5 open and with the cap as well. This way you can find out which gives the best temps.

I haven't done my final seats yet, I messed up my Enzo because of re-seating too much. =D Yay.

Holy shaz this is brilliant!

Check your repz.

May I suggest glue-ing or duct-taping it together?
Tape preferably because you will waste a lot in the tip of the pencil head. So you will need to transfer it to the next as5 tube you get.

This absolutely deserves a +rep. Not only is it an excellent idea, it is doable by every single person on this forum.
No mechanical pencil at this house. Everyone on forum minus one.

AS5 doesn't last for years. You end up getting a new Tube when you get a new cooler or CPU anyway. You'll waste more in the actual tube then you ever will in the cap.

However, whatever method works for you is what I suggest. This one gave me my best temps on my previous Dual Core so I was happy with it.

This is by far the best method...

I told 3 people yesterday to do this when they asked about TIM... And one today...

Zomg a mod needs to sticky it
post #159 of 241
Heh, I applied it in a line like that but without your pencil mod, so it was much thicker, and I get better temps at a higher voltage with the stock cooler I idle at 25C, 2.4ghz, 1.325v.
