    np, nice read. ^^

    @topic: wow. this is terrible Oo



    about the pre-spread
    you just apply a dot/line onto it then simply press the processor on?

    taking some membership(or credit-) card to "even the mass" actually worked pretty solid when I changed a stock fan together with a very tech-savvy person...

    You won't see a huge loss in heat transfer if you pre-sread it, but technically the air bubbles will hold it back and you won't get the best possible results. The actual difference you get is probably marginal at best, but if you have enough compound to do a test application (to figure out exactly how much you need) then applying it as a dot/line and spreading it directly with the heat exchanger is the way to go.

    The whole point to the paste is that it will absorb the heat better then the surrounding air, so having little pockets of air in your application is not really desired.

    I personally use articsilver thermal paste and I mean I've never got high temps or nothing when I did the spread method. But this is great that you showed us all this and how stupid people are when applying thermal paste on a apple laptop. That's sad.
