    i usually only use a very small amount, and then spread it on the chip using a plastic giftcard or ziplock bag over my finger. I think I may have used the "grain of rice"-sized, lay down the TIM and apply block technique the last time i did my mount though, resulting in what you see above...

    Hmm, I tend to use a real small blob, about a millimeter or so. Temps haven't let me down, so I'll keep it at that :)

    what i found that works good is that i have about 2 or 3 leftover tubes of zalman paste and i use the old tubes to spread my new TIM. as in the picture below i take the small thin later of rubber off the old tube and the bottom were it was pinched sealed is almost perfectly flat and arounded off. this makes it peftect to spread thin layers of TIM around the CPU

    Seriously, that sounds like a plane taking off, it sounds so similar... (I've sat on the plane next to the wing before, that fan spinning up from 5v to 12v sounds VERY close to the engines spinning up for take off.)

    How much air do they move? 1,000,000 CFM? ;)

    In a state of flux...
    That 4870 of yours is the worst one I had, Pig.....I had two XFX ones and while the first one I got came with 100% reference cooler the second had a cooler like yours does...aluminium and thin.

    It didn't cool anything as good as the other and was at least 10'C hotted on the cost and 15'C+ on the other stuff the stock cooler was sat on (aka a lot of things)...poor design and I have no idea why XFX used it other than to cut costs. :shadedshu

    Did you have another fan before? Or you used that one from the beginning?
