In order to install a processor, you must have thermal interface material. This grease, as it's often called, is what conducts the heat between the processor die and the heatsink. Without it, your processor's heatsink will not function properly.

I find the Arctic Silver 3 & 5 termal compound to be one of the best.

Check out there home page.

And instructions page

I use this stuff, and I get a extra 4C taken off.
