We’ve all seen people say “that’s too much thermal paste.” Most the time, it turns out, they’re wrong. This test benchmarks thermal paste application methods.

Our testing today focuses on thermal paste application quantities — not necessarily application methods — and looks at pea-sized dots vs. thin spread vs. larger blobs. Thermal paste application is much debated among YouTube commenters, and we think a lot of that is because it’s something everyone has experience with. Our Modmat still has application guidelines on it, but those conform to simply whatever covers the IHS most efficiently. As far as quantity, as long as it’s enough to cover everything, you’re good to go. We even referenced Luke’s LinusTechTips video from ages ago, which also tested this same comment.
