    Pretty much a case of premature ejaculation......I just touched the plunger and most of the silver flew out prematurely ...might have put the wrong nozzle on

    Reminded me of 40 years ago...........:eek:

    Not sure if I put too much or too less on but the temps are about the same but as I swapped aio's and its a hotter day its hard to know

    So be careful with the plunger

    the warning was be careful of the plunger because unlike say Arctic Silver this stuff flies out and I lost so much I may have not had enough left to do a proper job

    Best thing to do when you use Conductonaut for the first time ever is point it into a bowl as you push the plunger, just so you can feel how little pressure to use.

    Then you can simply suck it back into the syringe from the bowl, something you can't do with normal TIM. Same thing applies when you do apply it to the CPU.. applied a little too much? Simply suck the excess back up with the syringe.

    You only need a 2mm drop on the CPU, and another 2mm drop on the IHS. Make sure you rub them in really well to make them bond properly. If you are doing it right you will actually hear the cotton application bud squeaking as you rub it in.

    The supplied cotton buds are the best, but once you've used them a normal cotton bud can do the job too the next time you want to apply some.

    Its not the best thing to use on the AIO anyway, so all's well that ends well.
