spreading with a card is fine and it's the way a lot of people do it. I personally use a razor blade on mine.

The stuff that came on the H50 tho I just left it the way it was and hooked it all up.

The way that I apply thermal compound is I wear a none-powdered latex rubber glove and put a pea size amount on my thumb and squish it and mix it with my index finger and then I pat / dab the CPU surface with index finger and repeat this process until I am happy with the amount on the CPU, Works like a charm.I've been applying thermal compound perfectly this way since and especially with CPU's that have just the core exposed and no heatspeader like the Athlon XP's.You can have either what looks like a slight FOG of thermal compound on your CPU, or up to a paper thin layer done perfectly every time.

Almost the same as sticking your finger in a sandwich baggie to spread on the CPU, only this works 10 times better with the latex glove method.Also very accurate this way and no mess at all.

This thread is hella long, so I'll keep it short and sweet.

I love this cooler, but the manual is almost useless. I nearly screwed up the CPU bracket because of the manual.

The one thing i couldn't understand is, how the hell are you suppose to screw the water block onto the CPU bracket? that just doesn't seem logical, smeering the thermal paste and all.

And the pre-applied paste, man that's way too much paste!

Here are my 2 cents:

- Mount the water block to the CPU bracket FIRST then screw the bracket in..like how you would with any other logical heat sink, one screw after another until all 4 corners are even. No smeering paste, no uneven temps between cores.

- Remove the pre-applied paste or "pad"...it's just too much paste!

- PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE CPU BRACKET MOUNTING! there's nothing in the manual that states you have to clip the bracket in PLACE (pushing it up) and make sure you know which raisers to use!


Conclusion: e8400 1.53 volts 4ghz load temps 55-58c. Very happy.

DraganUS,

How the heck are you going to bleed your system of air bubbles if your resevoir is now lower that your rad? I would think air is going to accumulate on the top of your rad.

AcesHigh007,

Nice case. I notice you have back space for routing cables. Is that a future project for you? It would both improve your airflow and the appearance of your case.
