Default Re: DFI LP LT North Bridge Heatsink installation

Ok so I installed the NB and CPU coolers. On my Xigmatek s1283 I put some TIM on the heatsink and spread it really hard like you said, to get it in the grooves. But then on the CPU I did the line method. I guess I could try spreading it around on the CPU but a friend told me to do the line method. And Arctic Silver 5's application instructions. :P I guess if I really don't like my temps I can try the other way.

So CPUs only get hot in the core, whereas NBs get hot all over? Is that why the application of TIM is different?
