Help! Missing Thermal paste?? Tags: Build Thermal Compound Systems Last response: December 23, 2009 11:07 PM in Systems Share merlin803 December 23, 2009 10:39:04 PM I am in the middle of a build and was getting ready to install the heat sink and looked on the bottom to make sure it came with a thermal compound and to me, it just looks like bare metal. This is a stock retail Phenom 2 720. Am I missing something? The manual said it should have thermal interface material on the bottom?? Is it clear??
