As5


Recommended Posts

When applying AS5 to the IHS, how should a cover it? Just a drop in the middle and let the heatsink spread it, or should I cover the entire thing?

Follow the directions on their website, I believe they say just put a drop in the middle, has always worked for me just fine.

i believe the artic silver website suggests spreading out the as5 yourself to ensure you have good/even coverage. which is what i suggest also. applying as5 is not the time to become lazy and just put a blob in the middle! just make sure not to put too much on there. put a blob in the middle, but then spread it out yourself (that little blob should completely cover the chip - if you can't make it cover the chip, then add a TINY BIT more). if it "easily" covers the chip, then you probably have way too much on there.
