How to apply thermal compound on an i5-3570k / i7-3770k intel ivy bridge cpu? Hey guys since I did my last video on how to apply heat sink paste (Silicone Grease, and yes pure silicone grease rocks as heat sink paste). Now I am testing stuff and debunking an age old myth and I got a few of my subscribers telling that the pea method was better.

Anyway I tested them both neck and neck with some real bench marks to back up both of them and well they are pretty much the SAME, so lets stop talking shit across the internet and stop telling people that they are wrong for applying their thermal paste in a particular way as the most important thing is HOW MUCH (don't put too much or too little on) you apply as opposed to HOW you apply it.

Temp monitor was real temp and can be downloaded here -- http://www.techpowerup.com/realtemp/

benching program was prime95 and can be downloaded here -- http://files.extremeoverclocking.com/file.php?f=205

Video was edited in Sony Vegas EULA is here - http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/loop_libraries/eula.asp

Hope this helps you guys.
