Applying TIM to 6850

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

Fast responses will be appreciated, I am in the middle of doing this

I have read around and most people seem to say you apply more TIM for your GPU then for the CPU, the thing is my GPU surface area is much smaller than general CPU surface area, so it would seem to me it should need much less.

Can someone please tell me how much TIM I should apply for my 6850?

When in doubt do a pea sized application.

Ok went with what was suggested, at the moment it seems to be about the same as before, but it might come down a little i guess with cure times?
