Building a personal computer – thermo paste

I actually found this particular step to be the most intimidating. There are quite a few different methods for applying it.

  • Pea method
  • Line
  • Rice
  • X
  • Spread

Different paste methods

The process is simply applying a small amount of paste onto the top of the CPU before attaching the CPU cooler.

As long as you select the correct amount paste, then basically any of these methods will produce good results.
