i was feeling around my comp one day after a nice 3 hour game of no one lives forever (very demanding) and i noticed that while the board on my asusv7700 was moderately hot the blorb i put on was rather cool to the touch.now, i tend to lap like a mad mofo on speed, not thinking that one could put too much . . .i remember i had put enough arctic silver (coldcpu.com shipped me 2 tubes of arc silver 2 , wasnt billed but for one so you know. . .) to create a suction that was enough to hold the blorb with out screws(i tried it out too. . .i set it between some books upside down for about an hour looked like it was kinda coming off. .. ). could this excessive use be enough to act like a blanket, preventing heat from reaching the hs? also, i did the same thing to the chipset hs&f on my mobo (there wasnt any so i thought why not). is this reckless behavior endangering my components? how much is too much?
