The gist is the same, look for a photo for a uncapped 1366 and go from there. If your case does not have a top fan for exhaust and only a rear fan, you might just orient the cooler to the back anyways.
I have a Cooler Master Storm Scout, it does have a top exhaust but it doesn't do a very good job, will be switching to a NZXT Phantom in a few months.

Is that still the best method?

(Apply to the cooler, wipe off so it gets in the cracks, then do 2 lines)
this method proved best for me. i, rather painstakingly, filled in the cracks along the pipes with TIM, put two lines between a pea size and rice size on the 212 and placed it on my CPU. i will admit though, it really seemed like a waste considering how much of it I applied but it seems to be doing the job well.

the other way which worked well was putting a pea size on the cpu and spreading it all over using a business card.

i also tried just placing a pea size in the center of the cpu and placing the 212 on it and allowing the pressure of the device to spread the TIM but, as could be expected with this type of device, it really didn't work well.

I thought that would cause air bubbles? Or was that with using your finger in a plastic bag?

supposedly it does, but after running p95 on my sig system for several hours my temps never went past 40C (I think it stayed around 38 if I remember correctly). i don't know, maybe I'm wrong as I'm still learning, but I don't think that's too bad

edit: i'm not sure if it would matter how it was applied. i'd assume both ways could cause air bubbles.

Just bought it off newegg along with some shin etsu, very excited since my current hsf is awful and can barely overclock.

Looks like the 2 line method with cracks prefilled is the way to go for this cooler.

Which makes me feel like I have to remount. But if I'm going to remount I'm going to remount with a bigger cooler.
post #18 of 21
My personal preference after a few remounts is to not fill the gaps and put one thin line down the length of each pipe (4 total). This covers the most crucial part of the HDT heatsink and the excess TIM will be squeezed to the sides and fill in the gaps.

I plan on buying one in the coming week or so. Would be using AS5 unless someone has a better suggestion of one I can buy on newegg.
YUP, i got ice colder results with just the case fans movign the air and no cpu fan.
