So I'm about to install my CPU and Heatsink.
The CPU is:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe 1.86GHz 2M sharing L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor
The Heatsink is stock and comes with the processor. I was reading through my Motherboard's manual and it talks about using thermal tape in replacement of the thermal paste (since it hardens, etc.)
Now for the CPU instructions, it doesn't say anything about paste or anything else for that matter. So I look at the bottom of the heatsink and see these three strips (where it would be touching the CPU)
I'm assuming these strips are the thermal tape my motherboard manual was talking about, correct?
