Thought of this at work today: I got so tired of trying to apply thread-thin lines like the AS5 site says that I went Ghetto on the AS5 applicator! Before I did this I was getting 30c and 31c Idles on three different re-seats. It was pissing me off ROYALY.

Mechanical Pencil dethroned of it's head:


Mechanical Pencil Top on AS5 end. PERFECT FIT!:


Perfect Application:


28c Idle @ 1.31v:


I'm satisfied!

Note: You'll have to hold the cap down so that the pressure doesn't kick it off. After you've got it going, keep holding it and apply slowly. Works like a charm!

Time for me to get to posting in our thread! Finally happy with this seat, so I'll post up p35 results.

Everyone tell me your experiences with this when you do it!

Super Glue would probably do nice. Only, you can't put the cap back on! Didn't figure that part out yet, lol.

Good thing I have two tubes of AS5!

Snaps.

I hate putting AS5 on because I can never get it 100% right and it turns into a 2 hour fight with me, AS5, and my heatsink.



I'll reseat and try this tomorrow.

Nice Idea.

I REALLY wish you could have showed us what the COMPLETE application looked like though.

Why has this not been thought of before? And if it has why haven't i seen it lol!

This absolutely deserves a +rep. Not only is it an excellent idea, it is doable by every single person on this forum.

I hope by now everyone has realized I'm all about getting the best temps on Air! Down to the method of applying paste! My fingers hurt ssoooo bad from unscrewing this Enzo over and over.

Glad I could pass on something good to the community!

Grim--

Uhh.. Yeah it is. LoL. Go to Arctic Silver 5 website. =P

That's what you use on C2Ds.

Ah yeah! Sorry Grim! I forgot that not everyone uses C2D! Yeah on C2 you only need a thin line.
