    I use isopropyl alcohol wipes that can be obtained from electronics stores but also lint free cloth and nailpolish remover will work.

    Should I have my computer running the whole "phase change period" of that Arctic Silver 3? Is there any time difference if I donīt keep my computer on? :confused: :confused:

    I tried as ceramique after reading a few reviews on it, apparently it meets or beats as3. It sure made a difference over as3 on my cpu(-1to2c). And for 1/3 the price.
    Thanx again Wiggo for the insight on motherboard monitor. I tried it a long time ago, i guess the chipset on the board wasnt compatable so i gave up, and the newest version works wonders on my new boards.

    I have also noticed that every application of compound can have different results like temp variation with the same stuff on the same hardware at the same room temp. So go figure. Just like 2 new identicle cars on a dealer lot with the same mileage(like10km)on the odo may not have the same top speed or 1/4 mile time.
