Applying thermal paste to coolers with smaller contact area
Hi to everyone at Tomshw.
Just a quick question.
I recently bought a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and noticed the contact area between cpu and cooler is a lot smaller than the cpu. Do i apply paste to the entire cpu as normal, or just apply to the contact area on cooler ?

Just the contact area on the cooler.
If the thermal paste isn't conducting heat betwent the the cpu and the cooler in a given area, you are better off without it in that area.
