also it shows 2 ways to apply it on there web site, the spred a thin layer and just put some in the center and let it spred its self out, what way is better? and if you just put some in the center and let it spred itself out it probily wont go all the way to all 4 corners, is this ok? or bad?

thanks

just puttting a dot in the center works fine cause the heatsink and chip almost touch, and from what i've heard from people posting it takes the temp down about 5C, maybe mroe if i dont remember correct.

Pay attention how to apply it. The Newer style CPU (socket 939,754,940,AM2) you put a drop about the size of a big grain of rice in the middle.

On the old style like the socket 462 you spread a thin layer over the CPU with a credit card or spreader.

AS-5 is one of the best but it is made with SILVER (conducts electricity) so If you put too much and it spreads out it can short the cpu,gpu chipset out.

Also if you put too much it dosent always spread out and can leave pockets of air (which isant good either)

As it heats up (over a period of around 200 hours) It will spread even more and work even better.

Make sure you clean the surfaces very good before using it with alcahol (I never remember how to spell that)

well on newegg, I orderd it wensday, it was prossed the next day, shipped today, UPS dosent deliver on weekends, and they say the estimated delivery date is the 25th, the thing that makes me mad is that where my parts are now is about 3 hours away from me, ONLY 3 hours and they say they will be here next wensday there only freaking 3 hours away, I just dont get that at all,
