I'll be getting a new case soon, and will be dismantling everything for cleaning and switching to the new case.

What I want to know is if there is a better way to apply the thermal paste to ensure good contact. I'm not really complaining as even when stress testing my Q9550 never gets above 64c and that was in the summer, but if there is a better way of applying it, I'd like to try.

Good thing about the case I'm getting is it has an opening behind the motherboard so I won't have to take it out if I want to try different application methods. wink.gif


pea sized dot of mx-2 or whatever you use in the middle. put some pressure with the heatsink to spread. Twist heatsink 1/4 rotation each way one time. tighten heatsink evenly. Basically you are letting the heatsink do the spreading for you.

Depends how thick the TIM is if your using something like Artic Silver Ceramique it doesn't spread so well by just pressure. I would suggest spreading it on your CPU manually with a rubber glove if your using something that thick.

I like to do a small amount in each corner and about a pea sized dot in the middle. Works best for me, but its basically the same thing

I got them and installed them. I'm pleased. I'm using a voltage reg on each fan to keep them at about ~1500 rpm, which I'll probably take off when it gets warmer outside.



No clue why one core is 9C warmer at idle. In the BIOS, all temps are reported 4 or 5C lower as well. I don't know which to believe for sure.

EDIT: IC Diamond was used on the mount rather than the stock TIM.

I plan on getting a Feser Triebwerk to replace the stock fans eventually.

If its thick and you spread it out first with a glove then this method is extremely likely to trap bubbles when the two surfaces are pushed together,dont do it this way.

Watch at 1:55 for the air bubbles im talking about,air bubbles mean the surfaces dont make complete contact and less contact means less heat transfer.

Gravity It's just sitting there until I can get a thicker fan and one of these so I have something to bolt it to:

See how he put it straight/flat on that's why he got all the air bubbles.

If you pre-spread you put it on starting on one edge and push on towards the opposite edge. Little hard to do with the H50 but I can show repeated results with any heatsink with TIM pre-spread and no air bubbles.

On top of that I said specifically AS Ceramique because it is thicker than all most TIM's and especially whatever was used in that video.

He also did not test AS3 using the thin spread method.
