Appling artic 5 to CPU?? Tags: CPUs Cooler Master Cooling Last response: September 5, 2012 3:52 AM in CPUs Share jtwire2012 September 4, 2012 10:49:13 PM I am getting a i5 2500K + Cooler Master 212 (Plus) cooler and Arctic 5 paste. I have been doing some reading and watching videos and everyone does it differently but I am wondering if this will work fine I plan to put a pee size dot right in the middle and then put CPU cooler on wiggle a few times and screw in. Let me know if this will work OK or if there is a better way or what way you did it! More about : appling artic cpu abekl a b à CPUs September 4, 2012 10:58:54 PM Sounds perfect.

I've done the same, and it works perfectly fine for me. raytseng a b à CPUs September 5, 2012 3:52:35 AM i think one of the hardware sites tested the different methods, As long as you put more than a microdot of paste (like size of a period), so it spreads at least to the edge of the chip it works fine within a temperature degree or two. They even tried glooping on a lot, and then you get some paste overrunning the edges but it still works within a degree or two too. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
