For the people who just want to hear the facts I'll let you skip the rest. heres an excerpt: ...I received the arctic silver, removed my stock h/s clip and tried the impossible again. I happened to have a silver butter knife at my computer desk and decided to try breaking the clip in. I laid the clip upside down, placed the knife on top of the bend in the clip and pressed it down as far as I could a few times. Back to my cpu, I put the heat sink on and clipped on the clip. that easy. I think it might have been the fastest globalwin clip clipping ever. So if anybody gets a globalwin they might try it out....

I recently purchased a globalwin CAK38 and a cpu shim to go with it. I went to install it and even with the shim I was worried about crushing my processor. I finally gave up and used the clip from my old stock heat sink. On a side note one of the reasons I was reluctant to get it clipped on was that even if I did the seemingly impossible and got the clip to clip I knew I would need to take it off again since I was using tooth paste for thermal paste as I was waiting for my arctic silver II to come in. Yes it came with a square of pre apllied thermal paste but I removed and lost it for reasons I won't go into. The toothe paste actually work, at least better than nothing although the performance did decrease as time went by. So, forgive me for digressing, I received the arctic silver, removed my stock h/s clip and tried the impossible again. I happened to have a silver butter knife at my computer desk and decided to try breaking the clip in. I laid the clip upside down, placed the knife, flat, on top of the bend in the clip and pressed it down as far as I could a few times. Back to my cpu, I put the heat sink on and clipped on the clip. that easy. I think it might have been the fastest globalwin clip clipping ever. So if anybody gets a globalwin they might try it out. If you read all this thanks for listening to me babble. :)

What's inside toothpaste? Do they have metal oxides there? Haha looks like my varsity lab threw away money by buying water-based silicone thermal grease when they could have used .... toothpaste! Hmmm, toothpaste....

Some toothpastes have titanium dioxide in them. Dunno how much, though.

No wonder your mouth feels cool and minty...:D
