Thermal Paste

I installed retail kit for P4 2.8c, so I 've been told that the paste is on bottom of heatsink. I just then put heatsink onto CPU. Is there a tape or some covering to remove from this paste layer to expose it, or do I put on "as is"? Installation book does not mention removing any tape. Seems to be working alright.Thanks

  1. Onto the thermal paste there should be a small piece of plastic. You should remove that and then install the HSF, so the thermal paste can contact your CPU's heatspreader.

  2. Intel uses "thermal tape" which you dont' remove, it does the same job as paste but without the mess.
