    Should I reapply TIM to my cpu? I think its been more than a year since since I bought my D0 i7 920. I was using AS5 atm the time, and I have not changed since so I'm pretty sure its still the same TIM. Should I reapply TIM or is there no need?

    You can... But really there isn't much need for it... I have run AS5 on systems for 3+ years on heavily used systems and after a re-application maybe a 1-2c difference.
    Sanhime says thanks.
