When installing stock Intel cooler, should I wipe the thermal paste it comes with?
. I just added the MX2 paste that I bought separately onto the CPU and spread it and mounted the heatsink on top. temps were in the forties at idle.
Edit: I shd have mentioned this earlier. I sold that computer. Now I am again building a new one.
This time around, I want to do it right. So should I juust wipe the thermal paste that is on the surface of the heatsink and then apply MX2 on the CPU andd mount it?
Or just forget MX2 and mount the heatsink as it is since it already came with the thermal paste on the surface?
On a different note - I also have Hyper 212+ with me. But the youtube video if installation scared me away. So gonna go with stock since I am not over clocking anyways
