While in the strive for a better overclock i decided to turn off my computer and ( let the chip get back to room tempture), I then pulled off my Zalman 9700 from my Q6600 and noticed that only 1/2 of the cpu was aking contack with my HSF. I then scraped off the excess and put new AS5 on it. I didn't clean out the entire cpu or hsf, just the excess with a credit card. I then applied enough to cover the cpu and some on the HSF. Now when i try to run OCCT (like Prime95) it goes 2 or 3 seconds then reboots. Is there a reason for this. Or am i supposta actully remove all of the AS5 before reapplying AS5 to it? It made logical sense when i did it.
