Had installed with Abit 3rd Eye Motherboard recently. Used newer Artic Silver 6 paste whcih seemd a lot thicker than previous issiues. Found system temp fluctuated from 22 C to 42 in short period of time for no good reason and lost network facility / system very unstable. Took out paste had totally locked solid CPu to heatsink. Even though was careful.....took 2 hours to unbend about 20 of the CPU pins that had bent as a result of pulling it off. Maybe this was a bad batch of A/Silver.? Then tried with older A/Silver 3..... thinner but even consistency...totally stable on op temp of 21 c. Anyone had this sort of problem?
