Clean and install the processor, and be careful not to touch the gold contacts on the bottom of the CPU. Use a soft dry cloth or paper towel to thoroughly remove the previously applied thermal grease. It must be ensured that the top cover of the CPU (integrated heat sink, IHS) is free of grease, dust and any other debris. Note: Change the heat conductive silicone grease frequently, do not directly add new thermal grease on the old thermal grease. Install the processor in the socket.
Prepare thermal grease. If you are using a syringe, unscrew the needle. Inject the heat conductive silicone grease in the syringe into the center of the surface of the processor top cover.
If you are using a pillow pack, cut the pack along the black dots. Apply the thermal grease in the pillow pack to the center of the processor surface.
If you use a pillow pack, you may leave some residual silicone grease in the pack. When the processor is working, heat will be transferred to the top of the processor and the bottom of the fan heat sink through thermal grease.
After applying heat conductive silicone grease, install the CPU heat sink directly.
Recommended coating method: one point method
There are many ways to apply heat conductive silicone grease, the common ones are: one-point method, five-point method, X-type method and flat-spread method
Using too much or too little heat conductive silicone grease will reduce the thermal conductivity and heat dissipation effect, and too much will overflow to the motherboard. Part of the conductive silicone grease containing silver may also damage the components, so you must control the amount of silicone grease that needs to be applied.
