Re: Thermal Paste
Yes, too much or too little is bad. Just put a small dab (someone on here mention a long time ago to put thermal grease the size of a rice grain) on the middle of the heatsink and you're fine Too much creates a layer that can trap heat. Too little doesn't do an efficient job of transferring heat to the heatsink.
