Title: Apply thermal paste-usefull data
Post by: archonforest on April 05, 2018, 08:33:42 AM
Looks like applying thermal paste is a bit of a holly subject for many people. I did a search recently since I got 2 new 6core Xeon CPUs about this subject and I found something that is very usefull:

But speaking seriously - until I did maintenance to my machine, I had no idea whatsoever that a magic like "thermal grease" even exist... The guys at the computer shop talked between one another saying "go ahead, and change a paste here" and I was like "deeeeerp?" :o :o

But you can really feel the difference.

I don't really understand some terminology behind it (break-in period?) but then again, as an end-user I don't think I have to.
