Applying paste wrong to Q6700

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi, I know i'm applying the paste wrong to my Q6700 and Tuniq 120 and i'm considering reseating but would this be worth it?

I applied my paste on all of the IHS, not just a line down the middle.

If i did reapply and reseat, would this have any decent effects on my temps?

Thanks

What paste are you using and did you spread it out yourself, or did you just plop it on?

well I put little blobs around the center and sides - sounds ridiculous I know, I let the heatsink spread it out.

cheers

I might consider the washer mod, I was reading about it the other day - did it make a decent enough difference for you to suggest it?

Those temps don't seem bad at all for load temps...I wouldn't even bother reseating the HS if thats as hot as it gets.

Not to mention they will probably come down a couple C when the AS5 cures.

I would love it if my load tems were there...
