My friend installed my H50, and he applied thermal paste like this

1) Put grease on the CPU
2) Spread/Flattened with a business card
3) applied the extra thermal paste to the H50
4) Added the H50 to the CPU


Did he do it wrong?
Sounds to me like too much thermal paste. Were they the same thermal paste on the cpu and on the H50?

I'm sorry, but what is TIM?

Thermal something material?

Gotcha, so what do you guys recommend?

What type of thermal paste to use?
I prefer shopping at newegg, or frys/bestbuy.

4. TIM a.k.a. Thermal Paste- Personal Favorite (OCZ Freeze, MX2 or 3, IC7)

I can’t say anything better then what BenchmarkReviews has already shown in the below link:

80-way Thermal Paste Shootout

How to apply TIM is also covered in the review above.

Choosing the right TIM for you? HERE is a guide by Nemesi5.

TIM Removal:
When removing TIM you want to make sure all leftover residue is completely gone. Below is another quote from Nemesi5.
Quote:
Materiel used to remove TIM

* ArctiClean - This materiel perfect for removing the TIM off your CPU & Heatsink, it works instantly dissolving the TIM leaving room for another TIM.

* Tuniq T1-R - Just like ArctiClean, very easy to apply. The TIM dissolves very quickly making TIM removal much easier.

* However, if you do not want to purchase the ArtiClean, you can simply use Isopropyl Alcohol commonly known as Rubbing Alcohol to remove the TIM
If you choose to go with (Isopropyl alcohol) Rubbing alcohol make sure it is 80% or higher and wipe it clean and dry with lint free material like a coffee filter


i like OCZ Freeze.

+1 rep, but you deserve more so +2

I also think I need the best fan setup, and a fan I can buy dirt cheap to make a fan shroud.

The thermal tape already applied on the H50 is Shin Etsu, which generally is better than MX3 and OCZ Freeze. IC7 is still better than Shin Etsu however, and if I was going to buy some more TIM that is what I would get.

Stick with the thermal tape on the H50 though if you still have any left on there

Mine's coming tomorrow and I have a question : do I keep the stock thermal paste that it comes with or do I replace it with my TX-2? The pad on the block seems to be too large for my liking.
