Applying Thermal Grease
Well, just finished successfully o/c my K6-2 350Mhz to 400Mhz. But I'm still wondering if I applied the thermal grease on the heatsink properly. Man, is that stuff messy! I applied a very thin layer like everyone says but had a hard time w/ the stuff sticking to my fingers. How can I tell if I did it right? All I can say is the system has been stable for a week, but I don't feel too much warmth on the heatsink (I'm running at 2.3v). Thanks.
You should go to RadioShack and get a thermometer with a probe there only $9.99. Then inbed the probe in the heatsink. This should give you a good idea where you stand with the heat.
There's a great little utlity for W95/98/NT that lets you monitor the temperature full-time onscreen, or in your icon tray next to the clock. It's MBM383122.zip from www.euronet.nl/users/darkside/mbmonitor/
