Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, as a rather strong fan of gaming and technology, I have a decent understanding of the construction of a system. However, I have no idea about thermal paste. Can people give suggestions as to how much, and maybe let me know how long i need to have had the CPU before reapplying?
sorry if this is a stupid question, i know it helps with heat dispersal, but how crucial is it? and if my CPU is not getting full benefit from paste, am i likely to injure the CPU if I do not reapply quickly?
