    Hey all you computer building dudes:
    I am maybe looking into getting a new Processor and MOBO, but I have never put these together before. Is there some special trick to it or do you just take the processor out of its package and shove into into a slot on the MOBO. And how do you use that thermal paste stuff? Do you slather the whole processor with it or what? Help me before I do something stupid please. :oops:

    put CPU on mobo...put a thin layer of the paste on the CPU..the heatsink will have the stock thermal tape which I recommend you remove and clean with rubbing alcohol..

    after that, put the heat sink on the CPU and you're good to go!

    mmK, sounds like it must be simple from the simple way you describe it. I was hoping it was just as easy as plugging an electrical cord into a wall socket. Now I just need figure out socket type, chip set, form factor, blah blah, ..... :cool: :? :cool:
