Which is better for the CPU & heatsink? Thermal pad or thermal compound. Is there much of a difference for getting the heat away or are they pretty much doing the same job?

If your not overclocking IMHO dont worry about it, if your going to over clock then its compound and Arctic Silver is the most highly recomended.


But if you have Gremlins around then I would be worried no matter what you use. :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
