You've shown me one post that took place over 5 months ago..

HERE is a tutorial on thermal paste.. Show me where it says to much will fry your CPU..

Here is the application for Artic Silver.. again, no mention of too much frying a CPU or even the threat of it..

The biggest threat of too much is having it squeeze out and possibly shorting (very unlikely but possible) something on the motherboard..

I give up.. believe all the nonsense you want..

Yep, and I just answered a post stating the moon was made of green cheeze and Mars looked red because it was wrapped in cellophane.. :tazz:

You can believe that also because you read it in a thread!!
