    Hello my friend, I think better use k5pro on all components, because original pads was more bad. For This laptop k5pro it is good, this laptop has to much pads. it is my opinion.

    I saw that post of yours. Im not sure if im doing something wrong but ive tried different pads and pastes but i always get occasion drops to 800 Mhz on my CPU mostly at idle state. When on load it stays at max. Thats why i asked @Rei Fukai if he was able to get rid of those drops.

    This is a normal behavior in idle. Intel has different "enviroment/ power-saving" settings for this behavior and you can disable it if you want. The settings are:

    - Intel SpeedStep (enable/ disable over TS or BIOS)
    - Intel SpeedShift (enable/ disable over TS)
    - check windows power settings (balance, battery, max perfomance mode)
    - check AWCC fan profil

    Do you guys tighten screws with this heatsink all the way? Im afraid to crack dies if i tighten them all the way because when im screwing them it feels like a lot of pressure comparing to original one.

    Yes I am bro, the places where there used to be pads, are all replaced with K5-Pro. Sorry I did not see your comment.

    All the way down, just tight it until you'll feel the screws exert some drag. That way you'll know if your screw reached the end of it's thread. Stripoing these tiny screws is done in an instant.
