    • Re-Applying Thermal Paste:

    • Apply a small glob of thermal paste to the corner of the die, (I recommend using Arctic Silver 5) and use an index card to spread a thin, even layer of it over the surface of the chip.

    • For more detailed directions, follow our Applying Thermal Paste Guide.
