Default Applying Arctic Silver 5

When I buy my new cpu cooler, I'm going to apply arctic silver 5 compound. Do I put this directly on top of the cpu?

Yes, but be aware that applying any type of compound to computer components is almost irreversable as it glues the processor to the heat sink. I would double check that the heatsink you purchase is of the highest quality first.

Whoa there slick, I do believe you are thinking about thermal adhesive, Artic Silver is a thermal grease .

Yeah, that's what I meant. Sorry for the confusion. To answer your question then, yes, just apply it to the CPU on the top of the chip. Use sparingly so to produce a thin layer when you press the heat sink on the top. You want as thin a layer as possible that covers as much of the chip. Hope that helps.
