Arctic Silver states that it needs 200 hours of run time to fully seat, and that these hours should be broken up by time allowing the system to cool all the way to room tempeture.

Some people don't beleive you should let a CPU burn in first, that you can run it full bore right out of the gates..........me, I figure, burn in doesn't hurt anything, so why not do it.

After all, if giving it time to seat does nothing, then I just wasted time. But if it does make a difference, and I don't do it, well, then I might have wasted a chip and my money.

I have plenty of time......
