How to apply ic diamond?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
First off I apologize for the noob post but I just have a quick question about how to apply my ic diamond 7. It's my first time using anything decides as5 and for now I'm having to use my ic 7 with a stock intel cooler. Is there any particular way I should apply it while using the stock hsf on a 2500k? Or should I just use the normal bead method.

Normal.


Just squirt some in the center and be done with it... No ritualistic method for putting on TIM is better than just squirting some on the center.

I recommend the "bead" method...smoosh straight down, hold for about 30 seconds, then secure the HS.

I've read that you should let the tube soak in warm water to make it easier to apply.

If you do that, I recommend you wrap it in plastic wrap first. Not really a waterproof package...

Kinda harder to do with IC Diamond...it's pretty thick stuff.

IC diamond is self lapping. I have ruined the warranty on my last 3 chips using it with my old Hyper 212+. The push down and wiggle method of application actually left very obvious scuffing on the chips. It is very abrasive, and the thickness of it requires a fair amount of pressure to be able to properly seat.

Wasn't a big deal, as I was planning on lapping them anyway (and started doing so after the first chip was scuffed) but just something you should be away of in case the warranty is of concern.
