What do I have to put thermal compound on?
Does it go on my cpu, gpu, cpu cooler or what?
Im new to building btw.
My cpu cooler is hyper 212 EVO, does it come with good/enough thermal paste?
Also, does the hyper 212 EVO need the backplate?
how do you put it on the gpu? my gpu is the gigabyte gtx 770 oc, and i dont see how i could apply it.
also, does my gpu already come with thermal paste? is it good enough, and also how often would i have to reapply it? my thermal compound is arctic cooling mx4
I put thermal paste on my cpu when ever im putting a new cpu cooler on there, It goes on the cpu its self, unless you buy a pre applied cpu cooler with it on it. It goes on the gpu also. And the hyper 212 already comes with it when you buy it. May I suggest you go with liquid cooling, Because liquid is awesome
If you open up your GPU, your going to void your warranty, and given your lack of knowledge about thermal paste application, I don't think you'll do a better job of applying it then the factory where it's assembled.
