This is probably a dumb question, but how much thermal compound should I put between my CPU and heatsink/fan? My last processor/fan came with a little thermal pad thingy that seems to work OK, so I didn't have to bother with it then.

the system I'm putting together:
Athlon 2000
Soyo Dragon KT400
256 MB PC2700 DDR
Chaintech GF4 4200 64MB
WD 60GB 7200 rpm hard drive
on board sound and lan

For you! I'd love for you to go out and get me one of those! I can't afford anything else then my Xp 1900. High School sucks.

In regard to High School sucking......enjoy it now !
Sometimes I wish I could go back.
Of course at my age fitting in would be even more of a problem.

lol.... fitting in.. true....
but agreed on the going back... i just graduated last year and am now working in a lumber mill.... good money but not very "mentally stimulating"... although i do plan on going back to school in a year or two.... but once your out you realize how good high school really was.
