if your happy with your seating please help me

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey, alright quick info:
cpu: e6300 @3.0ghz 1.32v
HSF: zerotherm btf90
alright, ive seated once with the line method+as5 and my idles were 40C and loads 52C w/orthos

thing is, when reading my coolers reviews, people are saying they get way lower temps then i do. my ambient is 26C same as my room temp.

ive tried the line method of applying as5, and spreading a clear VERY small amount on my heatsink.

can anyone recommend a seating\\as5 applying method they use which they think is effective. i believe my temps should be better. thank you.

All you really need to do is put a small dot of it in the center of the proc... and let the laws of physics take care of the rest for you
