Default Re: URGENT! Cooling compound on motherboard CPU pins

Just a drop is all you need, more will actually lower the thermal transfer and would make things worse

Default Re: URGENT! Cooling compound on motherboard CPU pins

Yeah I did install the old CPU, but the heat sink I used (a free second hand stock one) had lots of compound on it and I had already applied thermal paste to the CPU... so lots of thermal paste which I probably didn't clean . I got an Artic cooler 7 now which had compound already applied... 35C

Also I got a watt meter and even under heavy load my pc ~ 129W!!
