hi all

i have recently purchased the x2 4400 and i have the following question about the thermal material

Do i have to add thermal conductor material on myself in the heatsink or also in the processor surface?

i have confused a liitle because the heatsink device as it came on the box, it has something like e plastic film on its bottom surface and i wonder if this it is alreadey the appropriate thermal material

thanks a lot

If it is actually a thin plastic film, wait till you'rr ready to put it all
together and remove the film. You shoud see a small square of the
thermal material. In this case, the processor should not have anything applied to it. Attach the heatsink/fan.

In the situation where neither has anything on it, a small application
of the thermal paste should
be applied to the processer to give a very thin layer as it is spread across
the complete upper surface. Don't add anything extra to the HS/fan.
Assemble; done.

If that's the case, and there is no pre-applied thermal compound on the HSF, here are Arctic Silver's instructions on how to apply it (go to Step 9): http://www.arcticsilver.com/ar...ilver_instructions.htm
