    I've just noticed something quite good..

    In the link to XS, theres another link to a google translation of the original article at the bottom of the page;

    "Of course, a good refrigeration system is the guarantee of effective dissipation of heat, noise and the possibility of starting. But it must not be forgotten that easily spoil the barrel of honey spoons tar....And in this case, even fewer than spoons ..."

    Err, say I forgot to remove the stuff on the Arctic cooler and still added Arctic Silver to the CPU, would that be bad? Might have made another rookie mistake here...

    Yes, you'll have too much and it wont work properly...your temps will be too high and you risk the stuff splodging out of the sides and shorting something.
