I am in the process of removing my STOCK CPU FAN from my system and replacing it with the Zero Therm CF800. My question is this - since there is already going to be paste from the original CPU FAN, but I need to put more on it? The Zero Therm comes with some paste, but I heard putting too much can cause as much issue as putting too little.
1) Do I wipe the existing paste off and start again? If so, what is the best method for removing old paste?
2) If I leave the existing paste on, how much extra do I need to put on before mounting the CPU Zero Therm CF800?
Ok, thanks for the replies - I think I got conned into a CPU fan that is actually worse then my Q6600 Stock Fan. Got the CF800 Zero Therm and my temps at stock speed are around 45-50. Sucks because of all the work to take the motherboard out again and replace the original fan...
Anyone else have this particular cpu fan?
