I have been building computers for a while but never built a socket 775 computer. So I just got my Core 2 Duo processor and I opened the package and there I see the processor and the heatsink fan.
Well as I can see the heatsink fan has at the copper zone some gray stuff which I believe is the included thermal paste right? My question is, while installing my Core 2 Duo processor, should I put thermal paste? or I can just put the heatsink fan in because as I said I think those 2 gray squares on the heatsink look like thermal paste so I dont know if Im right or not.
