Instruction leaflet with new CPU says following: Thermal Interface material is required for all AMD processors. . . . The heatsink/fan provided with your retail AMD processor has pre-applied thermal interface material. . . .
So . . . I don't need paste . . . or do I? Seems silly asking, but the darned thing cost well over a hundred quid & I really don't want to destroy it. It's brand new in it's box with fan & heatsink. Please advise?
