So I just finished watching gamers nexus video "threadripper thermal paste methods and benchmarks". I didnt see tho, or find in the comments, about how much are you using on each application, 2g, 4g, 6g? I just bought an Enermax liqtech cooler for my first build in a long time, and was wondering if 2g is going to be enough...

The amount can widly vary, but if your CPU (IHS) is covered with a thin layer (as thin as your thermal paste allows), you're fine.

2g should be enough for about 2-3 regular CPUs or about 1.5 Threadripper... would be my guess (never meassured it).

As for application itself, there's not a big difference, as long as there's enough paste.

Thank you. In the video he had a huge tub of thermal paste, so I wasn't quite sure how much would be enough. Again thank you, that helps a lot.
