This is the initial mount with the factory application of GC-1.
Here is the initial dab of GC-1. It was more liquid than I expected so I slightly over-applied.
Here was the resulting mount. Near the bottom you can see the excess GC-1 was squeezed out from underneath the heatsink.
This was a mount with the Scythe Ninja Rev B. Due to the higher mounting pressure it spread the TIM much thinner than the Silent Spirit.
This was a better application as I used my normal Arctic Silver Ceramique. The LGA1366 mount provided enough mounting pressure to achieve a satisfactory mount.
The stock heatsink resulted in a decent mount; the mounting pressure wasn't nearly that of the Silent Spirit.
