Default Burn in Time?

What is considered an adequate burn in time? 24, 48 hours? I did a search and came up blank.

If you are talking about thermal paste or compound that you find on the brand's information page. Artic Silver 5 sees 200hrs. of use as the time they consider a full breaking period. For constant use that would be about two full weeks with a system being on most of the day and night. No ocing for the first few days as well as running programs that demand cpu time heavily.

Once you give the system the first few days of use you will start noticing that cpu temps will start to drop down some. That's when the heat conduction first begins as the silver paticles start being heat conductive.

One article seen for applying that brand of thermal paste discusses applying the small amount used in a stirring motion since the particles are seen in a thin silver colored line in the grey colored paste there. The manufacturer's instructions depend on whether that is Intel or AMD and socket type as well as with heat shield or exposed chip are selected at Arctic Silver Incorporated - Route to Product Instructions for Arctic Silver 5
