You only need the slightest thinnest layer. All the TM does is fill the micro pockets of air in the HS & CPU die to make a more conductive transfer of heat. TOO much TM and your going to have the opposite effect.
Trust me... i did give it a good layer but only put a tiny drop of it... its was the right amount... ive built other builds.. and they have cooled at 19C but they were 65w and not 125w... i mean the CPU temp is fine.. but im wondering if the cores temp really matters over the actual CPU temp..
