Newly built PC w/
- 1.4 GHz Athlon
- Thermosonic Thermoengine V60-4210 W/ Delta 38CFM
high output fan.
The heatsink on this fan came with a substance which is supposed to make contact and bond with a spot on the CPU chip. I attached the heatsink to the chip before reading that thermal paste with silver is a better heat conductor.
Before ever booting up the motherboard, I removed the heatsink from the CPU and noticed that a portion of the bonding compound had adhered to the CPU chip.
I applied the thermal paste to the portion of the CPU as directed and reseated the heatsink on top.
Will the mixture of the 2 different heat dissipating media give me a problem with CPU temperature control?
