hello i have an intel i5 4670, i installed the cpu fan that comes with it but after installing every computer parts it was dead set... so i remove the cpu fan and cpu itself, checking if it's the problem.... so the question is?... do i need to reapply thermal paste, after using the pre applied thermal paste that comes with the cpu fan?... or no need?

    If you installed it then removed it, then yes you will need to clean off the old and apply new.
  2. "but after installing every computer parts it was dead set... "

    What does this mean. Was the computer dead and not booting or was it dead set on doing something that you did not post?

    I am not trying to be rude I just need to make sure I understand what is going on. Don't want to lose something in translation so to speak.

    yes it was not booting before...but actually it is now functioning well,... i already installed the cpu fan back, without reapplying a thermal paste,... so i'm just worried if my cpu will overheat because i didn't applied again
  4. Yes it probably will. When you apply then remove and reapply you force air bubbles into the paste which will cause heat problems but worse it may cause the paste to dry out.
  5. do i really need to reapply again?... if it is really necessary, what are good thermal paste brands do i need to buy?

    Nah, you don't need to reapply it, if you want you CPU to overheat and die on you.

    This is the good stuff:
