hi all
Id just like some advice on applying thermal past to an Athlon 3500 winni.
On my Athlon xp I cover all of the die with a thin layer of past but how much of the top of the Athlon 64 do you cover
I will be using Arctic Silver 5.
thanks

That'll do er. Nothing I can add to that except I found that the alcohol swabs used for prepping for injections works real well. They keep things nice and neat and you don't have to worry about too much or too little.

I've found general purpose grease (aka axle grease) to work just as well...
