Wow. you are so lucky to get such a cpu. Wait, you know how to overclock but not mount a cpu? there is an arm, move it over, then the clips that go over the cpu socket get lightly levered off. after that you can see the chip. lift up the Zif lever and take it off the board. the new one goes on in the opposite way.

this is for diff mobo but shows some close up pictures. its fairly easy as you just need to take the old heatsink/fan off and flip the lever next to the socket to take the cpu out. Use some rubbing alcohol to remove the old paste throughly. Apply just a little as5 like it shows in the pic and replace everything back like it was before. GL

Turn on the computer, let her run under load for a while, so it heats up the thermal paste. Then turn her back off, and unplug the cord, remove the screws which hold down the HSF, if not a clip, give the HSF a twist/turn to see if she'll move, take caution and don't apply too much pressure. After you remove the HSF, you'll have access to the retaining clip which holds your CPU to the mobo.

no, dont wait for it to dry.......just put a little bit (about the size of 3/4 of a grain of rice or so) in the middle of your cpu and seat your hsf on top.

i just bought the arctic silver 5. clear with that.

i read a lot of forums and i think there are 3 ways of putting the arctic silver 5. the problem is that i don´t know which is better;

1º put a little in the middle of the cpu and then, on top inmediatly, the heatsink.

2º spread a quantity of a rice into the cpu covering all the area. (do i have to do it too on the heatsink???)

3º spread the as5 all over the cpu again, but this time putting a little in the center and make a 90º over the cpu with the heatskin....buffff

what should i so guys????? i heard that the fx-55 heats a lot so it´s important for the overclocking i´m going to do.

thank you!!

A few other threads on this already. Do the drop in the middle method, its what Arctic Silver recommends and it works. Spreading is a pain, can often be done incorreclty, and offers no real performance gains.
