non painted cases FTW lol and I finally ordered arctic silver 5 to get rid of the schiity temps that have been plaguing my GPU since I put on generic crap that doesn't really work....  I'll be CNCing water blocks over the next several months hopefully for my CPU (already have designed) and for GPU which I'm thinking of doing two different blocks (one for the dye and one for the components) so I don't have to fuss with all the different heights and will lower the risk having problems with thermal pads.

That was at work, I listen to the Amazing Porta Pro's daily while building "Business PC's", a lot of these machines get put into car dealerships service bays... You can imagine the filth on them after a few months. eek.gif

Actually, no I can't.

You probably want to be using a non-conductive paste, like their arctic silver ceramique, just to be safe.

Well then here is what you do, find and oil stove or a fireplace and scrape off all the soot into a bucket . Just the soot, then lay the box on its side and take the cover off. Pour the bucket of soot inside the case and put the side back on. Then go to a vacuum cleaner and get all the dust from it and more soot, mix together nicely and pour that all over the outside of the case, back panel and front cover. Put the computer inside a box, run power to it, close the box and turn the computer on and let it circulate. After a couple of hours take the computer out of the box and you have a machine that has been in a service bay for 6 months.

Now put on some clean clothes and change the power supply in the computer to simulate a service call. biggrin.gif

I kid you not, I'll take pictures next time I am at a dealership.

Yeah everyone says AS5 is conductive but it is not, I have no idea who started this rumor that it is but people have ranted on and on about how it is NOT conductive.

 

Even if it was I wouldn't be that worried about putting too much on at this point.

Definitely conducts heat, but I agree with you that it shouldn't cause shorts if some squeezes out due to too much as ceramic is an insulator.  It just makes a big mess if you apply too much.

I've never had TIM ooze sandwich out before confused.gif


Hard to clean AS5 without the two step stuff, and I doubt its safe for anything but the metal cap...  I'm sorry but WTF, it only takes a little dab to spread.  Just apply force evenly for an even result ;)

I've had good success cleaning off AS5 with a q-tip and isopropyl alcohol.  Just have to keep swapping q-tips so it keeps picking out the cured thermal paste.  Ideally, you don't want to put too much thermal paste in the first place to make clean up easier too.

This will clean off compound from CPU slugs, Heatsinks and nicely lifts COA Stickers from cases.

I will remove skin very quickly as well... biggrin.gif

 

Just a quick wipe with some alcohol on a soft paper towel after gets the remaining residue off with one wipe.
