How to put TIM on a Q6600?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My buddy has his parts coming for his new build tomorrow. I have never worked with a quad core but from what I read they put off quite a bit of heat. He'll be using a Tuniq to cool it but what is the best way to apply TIM for a quad core? We will be using AS5 Ceramique.

I gotta add... doing it by the method suggested my AS5 may work for some. Play around with it and you might get different result. Using their method I didnt get ideal results. Perhaps since I lapped both my heatsink and cpu the creditcard spread method worked best for me.

If you do the "mechanical pencil" way of applying it, the AS5 recommended way might work well. But just using the standard application method puts on too much IMHO.
