omg, used the whole tube????????

thats really funny, not to be mean and laugh at you guys or your friend....

but i guess, if you don't know, and there aren't good instructions, you think hey, they give you a tube, and they know you only have one processor/heatsink, so you should probably use the whole thing up...

Well what's your specs? He's also probably using stock cooling. What cooling solution are you using? Air or water?

You can get some really nice air cooling at about that level if you have a killer ambient (like living in an igloo) and a superior/loud HSF.

I recommend the OCZ Ultra 5+ thermal paste. It is actually made by Arctic Silver, exact same thing as AS5, but generally found for a few bucks cheaper.
