Frankly, no one seems to want to agree on whether spreading it out is better than a small dab (though it does vary between heatsink bases).
I have the EVGA GTX460 EE which wouldn't allow for it, and I had to sell my camera due to military pay getting jibbed, but I sold it enough for 500 dollar rent=/

Sorry, didn't help me at all... No rep for you!

Btw he requested rep for himself aswell and mod removed it .
Well, I was saying for everyone, as I said "anyone". Alot of people don't give out +rep at all.

On a another note, PLEASE STOP REQUESTING REP AGAIN!! I pmed you a couple times and explain why you shudnt and also the fact that its against the tos.
This^... I also gave him a couple friendly reminders about the ToS but he didn't want to listen, he still has been asking for rep in almost every post of his I see.

OP don't mistake me saying this for me having a grudge against you or anything like that, it's just that like I mentioned in my PM it's frustrating to see people asking for rep constantly. You are so close to your rep goal and I do wish you the best, but please try and be more patient and let the rep come as it may, it doesn't make you look good to be seen asking for it so much.

trust me I know a lot don't give rep, but it shouldn't deter you from the fact that your helping people what ever the cost maybe.

Thanks anyway for the thermal paste review
