Closed Thermal Paste? Tags: CPUs Computers Thermal Compound Last response: February 22, 2012 11:31 PM in CPUs Share Asdfxdasdf February 22, 2012 4:05:28 PM So I'm new to building a computer and was wondering if I need to buy my own thermal paste or if it comes with it. Any recommendations on which one? I have a Intel Core i5-2500k. And a Radeon 6870, I'm not sure if im supposed to apply thermal paste to this also...

The HD6870 comes all assembled and no paste needed! Share Asdfxdasdf February 22, 2012 4:13:57 PM So if I do not have a cooler as part of my build, then I won't be needing thermal paste?
