Default Thermal Paste Application

Found this article on thermal paste application. I thought it was interesting and wanted to pass it on to others,like myself, who might be approaching the process.

Best Thermal Paste Application Methods | best thermal past application,thermal paste application methods,thermal compound,thermal interface material,best practices,Best Practices for Thermal Interface Material Paste Application Methods and Thermal Gr

I think I'm going to go with the "two line" method that was demonstrated on the last page of the article. I'm using the Sunbeam Core Contact Freezer with TX-2 thermal paste.

yep thats the method i use. unless i am just taking cpu in and out several times. then i just dot a little on it. but when everything is dialed in i use the two line method.

I used to do the 1 line method on my dual core; but lately I've just been doing the 1 dot method in the middle, and letting it spread out. Works fine as far as I can tell.
