    Guide is from notebookreview. Wanted to get an outside opinion. Will probably perform the upgrade tomorrow.

    Link is dead to me. You just want a wafer-thin and even layer with no bubbles if you can manage it. The Zalman thermal paste I use comes with a brush to make it as easy as applying nail varnish.

    Ahh that's unfortunate. I ordered some AS5 & Cleaning Solution to use next week, should get here by Tuesday. I'll re-apply that paste then, right now it's a crappy layer of OCZ Sidewinder (was my first time applying any type of thermal paste). Probably going to end up ordering a laptop cooler too, GDDR5 memory is definitely going to run hotter than GDDR3. I've heard you can use credit cards & so on as well to spread the paste.

    Little worried about the application (since this one didn't go so well). From what I've been told, it's better to use less then a lot, and that the heatsink should spread it fine (so you don't have to worry about the creation of airbubbles). As always, thanks for the quick response Originality.

    I just use the line method

    basically just put a line of thermal paste down the middle of the chip
    then plop the HSF on, the pressure from the HSF will spread out the paste evenly
