Thermal Paste - Page 2

post #11 of 14
well when i bought this crap i saw that on a good reputable site that made a review on it that the stuff was supposed to even out preform AS5. Maybe it is my cooler. I think that it is not pressing evenly on the chip....dunno. Bought time for a new chipl new computer even.

i've heard about a bajillion ways to put onthermal paste....and my best way is to pu on about the sive of a split pea into the middle and squish it down..it's always better for me that way then havign to spread it on...becasue spreading is easier said than done..since the stuff is soooo goopy and thick.

i think a good rule of thumb for applying paste is if your processor core is expossed such as pentium you put a bead then spread it across same goes for exposed vga cores you spread it just not with your fingers to corrosive or anything that would scratch your stuff.. as far as the amount im no expert....on amd cpu with heat plates you put a bead in middle and push heat sink down on it... i got this from a very detailed webpage the best ive seen

Well that would be impossibel since silver (AS5 is 99.9% silver) is a better thermal conductor then copper... sorry, it's physics, it would be impossible to out perform AS5
