37: I used the ASUS CPU mounting kit, but honestly, I’m pretty sure its a redundancy. I didnt feel any better using this vs doing it by hand, but I wanted to try. Its a bit hard to figure out how to make the CPU click in the tool, so to be honest, I would recommend the old-fashioned way: mounting with a careful hand. For CPU paste, I’m using Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. It sure is some sticky ****! Didnt quite get the end off, so it’s a bit of a cluster**** of a paste-job, but its gonna work just fine.
