I'd never use the supplied sachet of thermal paste unless its something I know, I also wouldnt apply it like have done there, With a paintball gun.
Heres a snippet from benchmarkreviews
- Does not completely cover processor contact surface
- Nickel plating retains heat and slightly reduces performance
- Unpolished mounting base
- Silicon TIM material supplied oxidizes copper <<<------ this is a killer , What utter moron decided to supply that????
- No spare soft rubber T-clip supplied for fan
