#1 PC overheating after changing thermal paste

Postby kakarot007 » Tue May 17, 2016 2:44 pm

Title says it all :???: . After cleaning my PC and applying thermal paste , instead of cooling down my PC , the temp has risen to a new heights : 80C- 90C in normal conditions :cry:

I don't know what to do , earlier it was just using the stock thermal paste that comes with CPU cooling fan .

Before applying new thermal paste i cleaned the old one too .

This is the product i am using : http://www.amazon.in/Original-Silicone- ... uctDetails


What should i do ?

Hmm , that can be the issue . Shall i clean it again and apply fresh new paste ?

Maybe i will try to spread out evenly with the card :) .

What do you say ? Spread method VS Dot method

Hi kakarot007,

Shall i clean it again and apply fresh new paste ?

Yes, please.

What do you say ? Spread method VS Dot method

You can not say that for sure. 100 people say Spread method, the other 100 guys are convinced of the dot method. Decide yourself. I can not give any recommendation on that.

Please do not run the system for a longer time when you have these temperatures.

Could you please tell me your PC configuration?

Thank you.

I would start over again and re do it.

Clean everything again.

IMO i have always like the Spread method for this way you know for sure it spread evenly.
