Cooling System Replaced...2 questions

I needed to clean my cooling system, but needed to remove the heat sink for efficient cleaning. I timed the process, 65 seconds is all it was off.

Do I really need to reapply thermal compound?

Second question.... So I cant remember what side to have up on the fan. It is a Delta Brushless. Should the arrow on the fan be pointing into the heatsink or away from it? Total airhead move not to remember which way it was.


My System Specs:
Dell Inspiron 530
Quad Core Processor
2 years old

hopefully thats all info needed. Thanks for any help!

Yes, reapply TIM it after cleaning.

The airflow must go into the heatsink, so the fan arrow should be pointing into the heatsink.

Hope this helps...
