Engima January 5, 2012 9:42:57 PM Thermal paste is not pre-applied to the CPU but to the bottom of the stock heatsink that is included. If you were planning to get a different heatsink then you will need to buy some thermal compound. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : ForumNew Egg ....
