Thread Starter 
When swapping out a mobo, should one reapply AS5 to the cpu and fan or should one just leave the same stuff there? Would it still work without a fresh coat?

Edit: Now you got 70

That depends on how much was still on there. If it is uneven, then you should definately spread it around to make an even coat. It is really your judgement if there is anything odd about it. I have removed my HS many times for cooling things, like trying out new heatsinks. I have never once re-applied and thermal compound. I haven't used AS5, but I'm sure it's not going to be all that different from a normal compound.

EDIT: Lol, I have 69 reps

Its always a good idea to add a little more before you put the HS back on.
Very nice!

sure why not, unless you have as5 on already.. too much as5 could be hazardous. Remember it's only needed to fill those micro valleys.

You really should do a whole clean application whenever you remove the heatsink, because putting it back on after removing it will add air pockets, which are very bad for thermal transfer.

I agree with Yiffy, any time I pull my HSF I reinstall a fresh bead of AS5

Same here when i remove my heatsink i clean it off and reapply with 1/2 to 3/4 sized bb bullet drop then lay on the heatsink turn it a little bit then put it down.. NEVER PICK IT UP that will allow air to get in contact!
