    Jeez man, don't get your panties in a bunch. There are a lot of things I haven't tried because the directions say not to.

    Here is a short list of other directions I follow:

    On Sears hairdryer:
    Do not use while sleeping.

    On some Swan frozen dinners:
    Serving suggestion: Defrost.
    (But it's *just* a suggestion!)

    On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:
    Product will be hot after heating.

    On packaging for a Rowenta iron:
    Do not iron clothes on body.

    On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
    Instructions: open packet, eat nuts.

    On a Swedish chainsaw:
    Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals.

    There's a huge risk difference between stopping a chainsaw with your fingers and getting thermal paste on them.

    The directions tell you how to do it right. If you chose to do it wrong, I don't care. I don't think it's a good idea to teach people how to do things wrong.

    If you tell them the right way, and how you do it and let them decide, that's okay.

    Well this 'wrong' method allowed me to get to 3.6GHz. I think anyone's a ******* for calling someone's method wrong when a) you haven't tried it and b) you have no basis in fact that the method is wrong. There are different methods of applying paste and there are certainly wrong methods in which, wrong implies that the method does not work, is self defeating (time consuming or does the opposite of what was intended), or in some way damaging. My method is none of those, so you are incorrect here, or wrong as you say.

    My basis is that the manufactuer specifically says not to do it. There is no ambiguity with their statment.

    I guess that settles it. The mfg is always right and their word is gospel. I've somehow managed to bungle my way to a 1.2GHz overclock by dangerously and incorrectly applying my thermal paste. If we followed the mfg for everything, this particular area of HWC wouldn't exist.

    Look, I'm not saying you shouldn't do it the way you're doing it. All I'm saying is that you shouldn't be teaching a newbie to do it wrong first. First show them the recommended way, and then show them the non-recommended way.

    If someone who'd never seen a computer asked you to teach them, would you start off by teaching about phase change cooling and extreme overclocking? I doubt it, you'd start by teaching them the basics and the recommended way of doing things.
