Question about heatsink that came with Q6600

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok, if I remember correctly, the gook at the bottom of the heatsink is thermal grease right? And to get it off all I do is get some tissue or whatnot and take it off... right again? lol I have some AS5 and I want to use that, its just I want to make sure 'do i take off the gook' or not !

Yes, use Alcohol to completly remove the paste that came on the cooler before applying your AS5.

Also, i put a microthin layer of AS5 onto the CPU correcT? Should it cover the whole CPU?

This much or a tiny bit more is enough.

Something you should also know about the stock cooler.

If you look at it, you'll notice that on each of the pins, the turning tablets on the top have an arrow.

Arrow curving inward = Unlock
Arrow curving outward = Lock

My method: Set all the pins to unlock first and pull all the tabs up so the pins aren't down. Right before you mount your heat sink, set your pins into lock position and just mount the heat sink from there. You should hear a click each time you press them down.

I find that method to be the best.

PDF from Arctic Silvers Site

Quote:
Carefully apply Arctic Silver 5 directly to your quad core heatspreader. Only apply thermal compound to the top of the actual CPU heatspreader and not the heatsink. The red line in the photo at left depicts the amount and size of Arctic Silver 5 to use. Be CAREFUL to apply the thermal compound in the CORRECT direction. To apply a thin line of thermal compound in the correct direction, do the following: Make sure to orient your CPU heatspreader with the triangle mark on the chip pointing down and to the left like the photo. The next photo is a quad core processor with the heatspreader removed. You can see when properly applied how the line of thermal compound crosses the quad core chip of the heatspreader horizontally. After you apply the line of Arctic Silver 5 do NOT spread the line out yourself. When you place the heatsink on top of the heatspreader of the CPU the line of Arctic Silver 5 will spread out just like an oval pancake. This is done this way to insure proper coverage of the heatspreader and a good minimum bond line between the two surfaces.
TaiDinh's pic is for a C2Duo, a Quad needs to be the other direction.
