I need to disassemble my pc to transport it from overseas to my home. If I take the G4900 processor out do I need to apply more thermal solution before I put it back together

Thanks

If you remove the cooling solution (read: heatsink-fan unit), you should clean the heatsink and processor of all old Thermal Interface Material (TIM) and apply new TIM when reassembling.
