Hows do i apply it on a new HSF which already has one of the small, square thermal 'bits' on it? Do i need to remove that first?

Any tips would be great, thanks!

Yes, remove that! I once destroyed a PIII 933 because of bits of hardened cooling paste were in the way. I don't know how to remove it (it's very fragile).

The HSF is brand new, unused. So i dont mean bits left over from previous usage - i mean the square shaped thermal 'pad' that comes already on it.

Remove it??

If your going to use paste yes you have to remove the pad ... you use 1 or the other.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
