First, thanks in advance for any and all help.
So, I'm building a dual 2400 MP system and the first heatsink installation was a bit confusing. I had a really hard time getting the clip locked in properly and at one point, lifted the heatsink off the processor. There was a small blob of the thermal interface goo on the CPU core and then I reinstalled the heatsink. This time, I got the clip locked down properly (with a lot more effort than I expected!
. The 2nd CPU and heatsink went on easily.
So, my question is.. does anyone think that I should remove the heatsink on the 1st processor, clean the thermal interface off and reinstall it with a thermal paste? I don't really want to do that, but if I have to.. better safe than sorry.
Again, thanks in advance for any thoughts.
