    Thanks. It's just a small drop. That die is very small. TIM is IC Diamond 24.

    Agreed, that's around 2-3x what I use for a lidded IHS. Then again, you always need to do a test mount, check for contact, clean and reapply.

    Part of the reason I didn't put a super small drop on the die is because I wanted to ensure total surface area coverage for good contact.

    I'm just going to start over with a smaller drop. :cry: The MB is just sitting on my desk anways. I have time to do it before I mount it in the case. I think it would have worked fine though. With IC Diamond I push the block down on the die first and excess TIM comes out the sides. It's a little messy but the die gets surface completely covered. Going to put about half of what is in the photo. Will post another photo for approval. :nutkick:

    All TIM upgrades and thermal pad upgrades seems to be working out great. My system has never been so fast, stable and cool with so little voltage. Very happy.

    that board would look really good painted green IMO.

    Look up on this forum about painting a motherboard. I have a thread where i did it and showed my steps along the way. Damulta also has a thread about it,his has more pictures, but combine the 2 threads together and you will see that we both didn't have any problems and will see the steps we both took. The worest part is covering all MOSFETS,pins,sockets,chipset,stuff that gets hot needs to not be painted.
    I have done 2 boards and both didn't show any negative impact on life or performance,that even includes long term,I have used the first board i did for 2 years and when i get a CPU i will be getting it back out again.
