P4 Question

  ste_bla 17:45 09 May 04

I am going to get a P4 2.8 retail it coes with a heatsink/fan.

The question is do i need some of the stuff you put between the CPU and Fan, cant remember name but normally a silver paste for heat transfer?

Also whats the diff between a heatsink & fan?

The heatsink is a lump of Aluminium metal fins the fan is as desktop fan but smaller the pad that is supplied is all I use and as worked fine every time. if it is not spelt correct you still know what I mean

so i could use it as it comes no need to buy extra things for it

BTW no overclocking so no real high temps

I would try it, but check there should be a bit of plastic or paper that need removing from the pad before you fit it
