EK-FC6870 Install Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've got a question about my FC870 mounting instructions. It all makes sense until I get to the standoffs. It says "please use a small amount of thermal grease on standoffs and glue them so they are concentric with mounting holes."

Do I need to get some thermal adhesive or do they just mean to stick it down with TIM? If I need adhesive, do I add TIM then thermal adhesive? Sorry, it is slightly confusing especially since my CPU block came with all the stuff I needed for an install including some TIM.
Thanks for the help.

Just use a small drop of TIM to hold them in place.

A small drop of TIM holds the standoffs in place

You just need to use a little bit of TIM to make the standoffs stay in place.
Use TIM.
