To paste, or not to paste, that is the question! Q9550

Community Manager

I'm upgrading cpu, and in the instructions, there is no mention of applying thermal paste to this beast.

Did Intel just forget? which I doubt, or does this thing not need thermal paste at all? Which strikes me as odd.

There is just the small sized copper/aluminum heatsink fan combo which I may replace if

if the temp gets too hot, but I want to be sure before firing it up, that that no paste is needed

or in don't paste it...cuz you'll have trouble!
