A New Way To Apply Thermal Grease

I use a similar method to adhere a cpu to a waterblock/heatsink that is not
permanent. I apply thermal compound as normal and a small amount of Type
150 silicon on each corner of the cpu. The cpu is placed in a slot 1
adapter and I use a clamp to let it cure overnight. This produces a much
more even contact to the cpu than I had before with waterblock fastening
devices. The silicon can be cut with an exacto knife, and the cpu removed
easily. Thanks,
