Does anyone know an approximate pressure exerted on a CPU from a cooler? or perhaps the pressure that would crap a cpu casing?
I'm not mechanically inclined but I have some stuff that becomes quite a bit better than thermal grease above 35 PSI. I dont really know how much that is.
I looked up the tightening torque on an M8 steel screw and it was 5000 PSI... which I assume means 35 PSI is low but i really have no idea.
I have no idea on pressure measurement of the heatsink on the cpu but i know for a fact that excess pressure crates problems for the mobo... i had scrapped a couple of boards due to this... the idea of applying ideal pressure is to turn the screw gently on the heatsink to the backplate till it stops rotating... don't screw more like how it is done to a car wheel nut when changing tyres...
