I've removed my heatsink and have bought a new one. Should I try to remove the old thermite compound(conductive stuff) or leave it there? If I leave it there, should I apply more? (It looks kind of dry and old).

I want to set it up asap!!! PLEASE HELP!!!

Remove it with rubbing alchahol and a soft cloth. Soap and water works too, but ensure the cpu is 100% dry before you reinstall.

HAHAHA


Also make sure the new heat sink does not have a thermal pad. If it does you could use that (if your not overclocking) or scrape it off before using the silver!
