AMD Phenom 2 965 Black Edition Thermal Paste?
Jul 13, 2012, 2:46 PM
I noticed that the heatsink has thermal paste on it, do I need to go out and buy some for the actual processor? This is the retail edition.
Thanks for all your help.

You don't need to buy thermal paste if you plan to use the stock cooler, the thermal past already on it will work just fine. You don't need any on the processor.

My Corsair water cooler recently failed so I have the stock cooler back on until I can replace it. I"m using the TIM that came with it.
It idles at around 30-32c
(I have the same CPU)
