lol

the first one would be AS5, the second one would be a material to clean it up if you're replacing the thermal paste.

Question, if the AS5 is only suppsoe to be a bead about the size of a grain of rice, it is suppose to be spread over the entire surface of the core correct ,or is it literally suppose to be a bead in the center (never used it although I am thinking about it.

Question;

Why is Zalman thermal paste white? It's different from any other stuff I've used.

There are others that are white, and there are some that are silver because they have some metal in them.

it spreads out to a circle about a third of the overall space of the heatspreader... its fine because that way it is oriented over the actual processor core, which is a little square die maybe a square cm or so dead center underneath the heatspreader

AS5 is only supposed to be applied as a rice grain sized piece when you have a cpu with a heatspreader then it will spread as DarkS1d3 said. otherwise on an exposed die (GPU, athlon XP, Duron, P3 etc) then it should be spread thinly with a razor.

cheap thermal paste tends to be white because it is a different composition.

generally white is ceramic, silver actually contains silver... pulverized. artic silver.... funny name huh? Silver has higher conductivity then copper, both electricly and thermally. As far as I know its the most conductive element.
