XFX sent me a replacement heatsink and fan and I should be getting it Saturday (Mine died) I was wondering if I need thermal gel to replace it?

Always clean off the old stuff and reapply new stuff every time you remove an HSF.

Paper coffee filter or lint free rag and isopropyl alcohol work great.

Oh dear, this is more complicated then I thought. Sadly it didn't arrive even though it was shipped Wednesday. Guess I won't be gaming until Monday.
