More about : buying athlon 435 cooling paste teaser August 20, 2010 1:15:17 AM It is included on the heatsink/fan,unless you buy an OEM cpu,but I always clean off the included thermal paste and use something better,like arctic silver or similar paste enzo matrix a c 131 à CPUs a b K Overclocking August 20, 2010 4:46:40 PM ^yep Also, there is no need to replace the stock paste/HSF unless you intend to do some heavy overclocking or are working in a hot environment.
