Im currently have this board:
So it has the Socket 775. It has a lever so when I put the processor chip, I lift the lever first then put the processor chip into place right?
Now this is my question. I want to apply AS5 but dont know where shall I apply it. Is it:
1. I lift the lever, put the chip, apply dot-size amount of AS5 on top of the chip then close the lever and attach heatsink
2. I lift the lever, put the chip, close the lever, apply dot size amount of AS5 on top of the lever, then attach heatsink.
It might sound stupid but really Im confused
Second question. Im already using this chip for 10 months and I didnt applied AS5 on the day I assembled my PC. Is it ok that I apply AS5 now?
Then, Im getting this heatsink with fan because my stock hsf is generating annoying noise like that of an vacuum and my temperature is in 70 degrees celsius on full load on normal speeds (no oc).
Has anyone used this product? I cant afford that Scythe Ninja that others use and I want to ask if this hsf is quiet than my current one.
