    Nice Video to show how themal paste spreads with the different methods

    if you see the video though, that can result in air bubbles... true though, heating up and cooling down will move the paste around so that is fills betters, but generally, the 1st application will make it better or worse. If i apply TIM properly on my CPU (with my cooler) i will get idle temps...

    Best 120mm Tower Coolers?

    Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO. No Other Cooler Will Touch it at that price rance, and even above it. (except your really high ends) the 1st temps are Dual fan, the 2nd single fan. The heatsink will suffer at higher loads and much hotter chips, cause it doesnt have as much mass, but for the...

    Upgrading Intel E6750 Stock Air Cooler (LGA 755)

    The EVO and the + are the same thing. same heatsink, same cooler, same everything the only difference is at the bottom. The Heatpipes are closer together (old design the middle 2 would take most strain, and outer 2 not so much) and they are now joined more "seamlessly" so you dont have the...
