Default Re: Zalman CNPS9500LED temps too damn high.

Ya check it out, i just reseated it again.

If i put one drop of thermal paste and let the heatsink spread the paste, i get contact.

But, if i spread the paste myself into a thin layer, then put the heatsink on then take the heatsink off to check if the bottom of the heatsink has paste on it, theres NO paste at all on the bottom of the heatsink.

I'm gonna see about contacting Zalman about an RMA.
