I just helped Drizzt5 today, I like to take a blob and use a credit card to smear it evenly across the chip. Seems to give me the best results...

I bow down to you mgcook. You're the first person I met here who know how to use the marco feature.

is it a good idea to use MX-2 on my Crucial RAM???

EDIT:

There talking about GPU's... we have to get around to the GPU's paste eventually remember?

BTW, It's called paste right? not grease -_-... cause at school they laugh at me for saying paste :/

When i did my GTS320 which is the g80 giant gpu i put 4 blobs in a square, when i redid my gts512 which is the smaller g92 core i just did a small blob in the middle of the gpu. Both methods seemed to work fine.
