That first pic is way too much paste, there shouldn't be piles of paste afterward.

I try and do that before I lock the chip in the board, and you used about 30% too much paste.

I also like to put a little on the tower itself, in addition to the paste on the chip.

The first pic was my first application which did post but at least 10c to high at running temp.. the second pic is my new application after my cleaning of each surface.. looked like a perfect amount?

Maybe a bit too much, but paste is cpu/heatsink specific. Its like most things in life some cpu's/heatsinks mount tighter than others. So you have to find the right amount that gets you that sweet spot. It took me about 5 remounts to find mine, plus a few weeks between to let as5 cure.

Oh? Maybe this is it.. info i had no idea about, letting the as5 cure? I mean i did just reapply and try to boot it in about 20 minutes.. i have to let it cure? That does make sense considering after i built it the first time.. i waited 6 days before its first boot because i was waiting for the 8-pin adapter to come in.. so your saying wait a couple days for it to cure and itll work? Or remount and reapply and try to post again?

The paste will cure as you use the computer through heating and cooling cycles.

I take it you checked all your power connectors? The next thing to do is reset the cmos, just in case.

I used the Zalman brush on paste that came with the 9700 and with my 9650 at 3.7/1.35v I was getting similar temps...44 idle/60-65 load.

I reseated a few times and got the same temps. I used a 80mm fan to force air into the Zalman 9700 and I saw a few degrees drop. It wasn't until I got the Reserator that my temps dropped dramatically and I still use the same Zalman paste...its good stuff

Did you tighten each screw on the HSF equally? Its a real pain to install that HSF I found, really hard to keep it straight whilst applying the pressure to tighten it.

Yeah, i thats what i thought... this sucks, I have this gut feeling that i should spread the thermal paste out over the whole surface of the cpu, just a VERY thin layer, like half the amount of the first pic. Like i said.. half of people say never do this and half say always do it, the always do it worked for me the first time.. i just put too much on. As you can see, im clearly confused. And the worst part is im not dry starting this, im install/uninstalling which adds to the frustration.. but next reapply will happen outside the case.. reason being, my lian li case and zalman 9700 dont like each other, the near side screw for the bracket is unaccessible when installed into the case.

Yeah those temps seem a bit high, I know I have only got a E2160 but at stock settings on my Zalman 9500 + AS5 I get 42-46°C max load temps with the fan on minimum.

The way I applied the AS5 was a line in the middle plus a very small dot in each corner. Just incase the line didnt spread all the way to the corners.
