this question was probably asked a million times but i cant seem find a definite answer. i have a coolermaster 212+ and as5 thermal paste. I have a i5 750 and was wondering what the proper way to apply the as5 was. thank you
If you see the pictures done on HDT Heatsyncs you will know that Arctic Silvers site shows one of the worst ways for a HDT heatsync, because of the shape of the bottom, 4ryan6 also showed me pics from his Xega and you can clearly see the groves that a HDT heatsync leaves, if you only apply one drop in the middle, it will only spread about 65% over the surface of the CPU and heatsync, now this is only on HDT heatsyncs or Non flush ones. So Artic Silver's site should also include a set of HDT ( Heat-pipe Direct Touch ) intructions.
