Redskins36 Posted April 29, 2005 Posted April 29, 2005 Hey everybody, got a few quick questions on applying thermal paste. I recently ordered a tube of AS 5, 3500+ Venice chip, and a Thermaltake heatsink/fan... this one to be exact... http://www2.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp...N82E16835106055 ... Anyway, all that crap should be arriving to the house in the next couple days. I read the online instructions for AS 5 on their website, but it's confusing in one specific part and it leaves me confused. Like I mentioned, I have a Athlon 3500+ chip. My question is... do I need to rub the thermal grease on the heatsink bottom annnnd apply a dab to the processor top? Or, do I just apply the dab to the processor top? The website's instructions are confusing because the part where it talks about applying and rubbing off the grease on the heatsink to fill in the "valleys," it says "For Artic 1, 2, & 3" in red. I can't tell if that only applies for that one step or for the one section. Anyway, could someone give me some feedback on how to do this? Preferably someone that has done this before. Thanks Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
