Daniella ...

It sounds like "the Guy" doesn't know what he's doing to be honest IMO, I'd stop using him, as it sounds like YOU know more than he does actually, you are just afraid to do it yourself and don't know everything just yet ...

On that note, not saying I do either by ANY means, but something that has helped ...
go to NewEgg TV on youtube, http://www.youtube.com/user/newegg#p/u/3/d_56kyib-Ls , and start watching some of their video's. They do a nice job of keeping it simple for us non tech geeks, and I have found them to be informative and helpful during my first build here, but the Guys on this thread are my single best source of education, be sure to listen to what they advise you on here as well.

Another good site/board to read through and get some info from is over at http://www.asusrog.com/forums/ ... it's watched over by some of the Asus staff, so you really get the low down from the Manufacturer on how to best get/keep your system running. And there's a good step by step post about building your Rig you should maybe review ... http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showth...ding-an-ROG-PC

Hope this helps a bit
best of luck

Well I dont know how to install all of it. Now there is like a lot of thermal compound on the cpu chip or whatever but some around it like on the silver thingy. Did he brake my CPU? Well before he applied any thermal compound he tried it and I still got no signal.
Found this on google
http://www.google.com/imgres?q=i5+25...t:429,r:18,s:0
He applied it on the middle cpu chip and some around the gaps...
But I am returning that mobo
not the cpu though

It will depend on the orientation of your cooler, but most likely at least SLOT #1 will be covered to some degree ... it also depends on IF you use the lower mount fan or not, and the Height of your RAM, and if you're filling up all 4 dimm slots.

IF you're using LOW PROFILE or Standard basic height RAM you shouldn't have ANY issues, IF you're using TALLER RAM, & the LOW FAN on the COOLER and are filling up all four DIMM's then SLOT #1 will probably be an issue and you'll most likely have to remove the Heatspreader on that dimm, which at least for my Corasir Vengeance wasn't hard to do as it's only stuck on with double backed foam tape and the little side tab locks that are easy to pop apart.

@ Daniella

By "silver thingy" I'm assuming you mean the socket bracket ... In this pic ... the Thermal Compound is JUST on the CPU, the "bracket" around it is clean still ... IF he got it all over then yeah DO NOT USE THIS GUY ANYMORE ... and you'll need to clean it off.

To clean it off you'll need to be VERY careful ... DO NOT remove the CPU just yet because if you get the thermal paste down inside on the gold contacts under the CPU ... ... then you've just boned your Motherboard. Also be careful what you use to clean it off, rubbing alcohol would work, but "ArctiClean Thermal Cleaner" would be better and safer on the board if he's really made a mess of things.

Oh no not on the bracket, just the gap between it.
post #990 of 7108
Don't worry about the thermal paste being around the bracket or the CPU as long as it is not in the socket you are fine, it's just messy. As far as cleaning it out, you can get a can of electronics cleaner and just spray it off so you do not accidentally push it into the socket or somewhere else it doesn't need to be.

Is this your first PC build? If so, I would suggest reading some "How to build a PC" threads before going any further.
