Thermal Grease/Tape

Custom / CUSTOM BUILD

Specs: Windows XP, AMD II 955 3.2Ghz/4GB
I recently got the New Black edition AMD II 955, and the heatsink that came with it has a thermal grease already on it. Any clue if I should buy another type of grease, or leave the AMD stuff on it? It looks kinda like it might be tape too, I don't know.

It probably came with a thermal pad. If it did, you can use the pad instead of paste. Check the instructions sheet that should have come with the processor.

Yes, use the thermal pad. However, if in the future you need to separate the CPU from the heat-sink then you should remove all traces of the pad and replace with thermal grease. The pad is not reusable.
