Does the processor itself come with thermal paste?
yes and no. if you going to purchase an oem version no it doesnt, ya have to purchase an heat sink and fan and thermo paste seperate. If ya going to purchase an retail(boxed) version the heat sink comes with heat tape stuck to it.(or they used 2). But either way it is good to have some thermo paste on hand just in case.(4 now or later down the road). Hope this helps :?:
