mm if you are doing any kind of overclocking it should be done often. I literally fried the thermal paste on my 6800 since somehow the temps got to 120 celcius.

like airiox said, if your oc' ing you should do it often. or if you take the heatsink off the cpu then you should reapply :)

So sheould it be reapplied with regular usage? I know I did mine recently because I upgraded the processor, but it can be such a pain to get those darn heatsink's off!
