The grease is liquid, but not water and other volatile substances, basically is metal powder and silicone oil and other filler mixture and the main components of a liquid for easier filling into the metal crevice but with the help of metal particles in the first smear. So in figure after the completion of forced compaction can do not bother. Basically 4~5 as long as there is no loosening it again without filling, among a lot of people because the heat grease problem lead to poor heat, because of fan vibration causing grease from the grease composition, even volatile liquid which is also never mind. Following the simple explanation of thermal grease smearing the method.
The first 1 with high purity solvents (such as high purity isoamyl alcohol or acetone) and lint free (such as a camera lens cleaning cloth) CPU core surface and the bottom of the radiator, don't let the fingers touch the core and the surface of the radiator.
2 determine the heat sink and CPU contact area at the bottom of the radiator thermal grease squeeze a certain amount of regional center.
3 fingers into the plastic bag, and then use thermal grease, apply the fingers back and forth press the bottom of the radiator, until the grease evenly distributed in the CPU region of contact. You can through the clockwise and counterclockwise movement, to ensure the gap and uneven fill the bottom part of the radiator where grease. Note: do not apply directly to your fingers!
4 with a lint free cloth to wipe the thermal grease at the bottom of the radiator, then you can see the bottom of the radiator is coated with silicone grease and other areas where the color is not the same, that has filled the base grease uniform gap.
5 with clean tools (such as razor blade or a clean knife) to stir up a little thermal grease, and placed into a corner of the CPU core (such as the lower left corner of the place like). Attention, as long as a small piece of it.
6 the use of razor blades or other clean tools, from the angle to the CPU core, the grease evenly over the entire core. For the ordinary radiator bottom surface, grease thickness is about an ordinary paper thickness, if the radiator bottom surface is smooth and bright, so grease can be thin to translucent.
7 confirm the radiator base and the core of the CPU surface without foreign bodies, to sink into CPU, the only light pressure, can not rotate or shift the radiator, otherwise it will cause the uneven thickness of grease between the radiator and the CPU.
Graphics generally do not need manual daub grease, graphics is used in thermal paper or silica gel, the graphics card fan noise problem is generally the result of the accumulation of dust fan, remove the fan cards to clean up the dust on it.
