Applying AS5

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I take it it's just the same process as applying to CPU? A tiny blob in centre and then just put your heatsink on?

Basically. Just a dab (size of a BB) and let the heatsink smush it around. Or you can put a plastic bag over your finger to smear it around if your worried about air bubbles.

Says on the site: place heatsink on the BB size of AS5. Then twist clockwise and then anticlockwise once about 1 to 2 degrees each time to remove air bubbles. Most effective method. Just wanted to know if the same applies to GPU? Shouldn't be any different from CPU right? Same size, same method, etc?

Actually the Arctic Silver website says it's the most recommended method for removing airbubbles and since they make the stuff... Also, u shouldn't be using a razor blade to spread anything. In fact you shouldn't be using a razor blade at all...

I would imagine Artic Silver know best how to use their own product.
