I am considering reseating w/ the stock TIM that comes w/ the cooler as recommended by PapaSmurf and many other members from various threads.
But I do have a question though, following the guide posted, should I be tinting the CPU w/ the TIM as well? Or should I stick to just filling in the gaps between the pipes and using the line method w/ a clean CPU? Thanks in advance!
Yay, first post! D:
Hi Cokezzz, filling in both surface would sound right to me... just make sure you don't put too thick of thermal paste... probably fine layer with around 0.5mm thick is fine or less than 1 mm in total thickness at most... IMO.
