How to change a heatsink

vbimport

#1

i have athlon processor.

i want to change heatsink of machine.

do i need to apply thermal paste or thermal pad :confused:

Some heatsinks come with a thermal pad. Although these aren’t as good as some thermal grease is, for most people they’ll do the job.

If you want to cool better, or have a heatsink without thermal pad, use some thermal grease on it. Artic silver 3 is the best you can get!
