i tried a thin coat at first and then a slightly thicker coat the second time. the tuniq tx-2 paste says to use 2x the normal amount since the paste is different somehow. So thats y i used a bit more the second time. I'm usuallly pretty good with thermal paste i think since i've mounted other fans before but only stock ones that didnt come with paste. Maybe the dynex paste is better than the tuniq? or should i return my cooler?
EDIT: Do you think disabling Amd cool n quiet would help at all?
