Will it fit ?

hello im wondering if this mobo can fit in my case ASUS M4A78L-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
i have an acer 3100 and its a ATX design because everything is atx including my psu. so i am just wanting opinion's if it will or not oh and why does it matter how you put on thermal paste cant you just dab it on the processor then put the heatsink on or does it have to be precisely fixed on a certain part of the cpu

    The motherboard will fit your acer case.

    About the thermal paste application, if your heatsink has a flat square or circular base, without heatpipes making direct contact, like this: The motherboard will fit your acer case. About the thermal paste application, if your heatsink has a flat square or circular base, without heatpipes making direct contact, like this: then it's best to place a small dab in the center of the cpu and let the weight of the heatsink spread it.

    But if it's a HDT heatsink: It's best to put 3 thin lines on the space between the heatpipes then slap it in.
  2. my heatsink is like a square that just sits on the cpu and there isnt any pipes
  3. oh and could you find two ram sticks that are both 2 gigs cause i want 4 gigs in total and the mobo only has 2 dimm slots and so idk which ones to choose
  4. thank you y much for the kno2wledge that youve given me thisal be a better upgrade from my f690gvm mobo
