Also, why does Thermalright recommend spreading it into a thin layer?

That is counter to most of the test I've seen. Are they saying this to be idiot-proof, and make sure you don't put too much or too little TIM?

Where are you guys getting air bubbles from? That’s what happens when you lift your cooler to check your Tim print. You aren’t supposed to put your cooler back on when you do that. Your supposed to clean it off and reapply.

Perhaps for you to spend more paste and buy another tube? For sure, no matter how pro you are, you are going to spend more paste spreading it. That OC pro in the video seems to be spreading peanut butter on a slice of bread.

Amazon says it has carbon microparticles in TF8.

It sounds like the same type of material in IC Diamond that will stain and remove the markings on the cpu.

IC Diamond has diamonds in it. It doesn’t stain your ihs, it’s like sandpaper. TF8 is nothing like ICD7. No stains, no marks easy on easy off.
