i just ordered the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus and some Arctic Cooling mx-2 was wondering the best way to spread the compound as i have never used a HDT heatsink?

  1. Normally you spread it on the CPU while it is already latched to the board. 2 small rice grain sized amounts should do the trick. Then spread it evenly around the whole CPU making sure you have a very thin layer. Then all you have to do is install the cooler and you are done.

    Personally I apply it to the heat sink and not the actual CPU. This way im sure it wont get on to the board no matter what. Here is a link that can help you :

  2. Here's a website that tested various thermal paste applications on multiple heat sinks including HDTs

  3. how hard is it to lap the heatsink have never done it

  5. Don't lap a heatsink with exposed heatpipes in the base! Those pipes are really thin and you could easily put a hole in them.

    I lapped a hyper 212+ with no problems. I didn't check any temp difference as I lapped before installing. The gaps were noticeably smaller after lapping and it felt more smooth.

    If your going to lap just lap in moderation. Just don't sit there lapping for hours until it breaks :P
