Zalman CNPS9700LED Thermal Paste Info Needed.

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering, I don't have any other Thermal Paste to use so I'll just have to stick with the Zalman one, anyways how much do I put on, do I put it on the heatsink and CPU or just CPU? And also, how much do I put on :S

Is that the thermal paste that comes in a like a nail polish bottle? Yeah, I wasn't sure how to apply it at first aswell =P. Just put a light coat over the hole cpu. When your finished you should still be able to see the writing underneath.
Oh, hai.

I like to spread it on the CPU with a clean plastic card (cleaned with rubbing alcohol first) a very thin layer like the pic above shows alittle bit goes along ways. btw Arctic Silver 5 is awesome stuff.

So, I see the writing, haven't applied any paste yet, do I apply it until I see the writing underneath again?

The Zalman grease should be painted on as a thin coat, just as others have said.

It's neither viscous enough, nor does it have an applicator that can put a small blob, or raised line, on the IHS.
