Default Arctic Silver 5

putting on a new heatsink. as far as AS5 goes what works better, smothering the **** out of it with the paste or just the small drop that they recommend. most likely the latter but cant hurt to ask. thx

Put a small bit the size of a gain of rice. do not thin it out with a credit card or anything because that will cause air bubbles and lower its proformence. also it shouldn't cover your whole cpu but thats normal (If it does with as5 you used too much)

Also they have instructions on there website somewhere.
