Thanks for the info.
What is the best way to clean the CPU? I set the stock fan onto the CPU and it left some compound remnants on the CPU. I suspect I should remove it before installing the aftermarket cooler. How do I do this?
I find that rubbing alcohol (get the highest concentrated alcohol you can get..atleast >90%), and a few Q-tips, work quite well. make sure you apply new TIM before installing the new HSF though!
