Tags: Heatsinks Thermal Compound CPUs Evo Overclocking Last response: June 23, 2012 11:59 PM in Overclocking Share aznpiggy June 22, 2012 6:31:05 PM Hi, Yesterday I purchased a CM Hyper 212 EVO and I forgot to purchase some alcohol for removing the thermal paste off my CPU. Can I just apply the new HSF onto my CPU since there is already some thermal paste on it? Thanks.
