Looking at my CPU, it looks very convex. It only contacts the Mega in the middle but the outsides do not make any contact. The thermal paste pattern on my CPU and heatsink is a hole in the middle and then thick ring of paste around the outside! I applied thermal paste using the pea/BB method too. I can actually rock the chip back and forth when I place it on top of the base of the heatsink.
It looks very similar to this:
Will AMD accept an RMA? Does this warrant a lap?
Did you lap your CPU/heatsink eclipse?
Edit: It appears that my Megahalems is making a "bowed" contact with my CPU. I read that bowed is a good thing? I am confused. Edited by Riou - 9/29/09 at 5:13am
