Put a test drop on there and try it, then take it off and look. I'd say a BB size drop is probably way more than needed.

You just have to line it up very carefully. I'd say if possible leave the factory Thermal pad because it works very well if there is adequate contact. I removed the Hs on my 1st CHIV only to see perfect contact so I left it alone and the temps were great....comparable to water cooling, with a fan blowing across the NB towards the SB.....although my system is not in a case.....wait, but it was originally and the temps were still very good.

well did the NB fix, the NB was not making any contact at all but all of the SB was, I filed the NB standoffs to the same size as the SB and then cleaned off all the that yellow waxy stuff that was on them and put on a little drop of IC Diamond on both of them and mounted it back on and now at idle with no fan blowing on hte NB my temp in Probe II is 38c and the SB is 30c, this is after letting the computer run at idle for around 30 minutes, I couldn't be happier, thanks to everyone that helped me out on this

The stock heatsink works well when it's installed correctly. Glad to hear you got it fixed. It's a great board. Enjoy.

I haven't been following this thread recently, but I was wondering, has Asus fixed the problem yet with newer boards yet?

I've had 3 of them and no problems with the NB/SB heatsink not making contact on any of them.

YangerD there is no telling what if anything Asus as done about the NB problem, there have been folks that bought the motherboard as soon as they went on sale and didn't have a problem but alot did, I don't know if they did any revisions to the board are not
