How exactly do I go about applyinh thermal grease to my AMD Thunderbird CPU? Where on the CPU should I place it, how much, and what about when I have a shim, should I grease that up too? Any tips and/or websites that explain this would be great!
You should put a little dab right on the core of the T-bird and spread it around with a credit card or a razor blade so that it's about the thickness of a piece of paper. Dont need any on the shim.
