yah that would be the best bet. Just remeber to use no more than the size of a grain of rice.

And when you go to mount the pump remember to screw it in a X shaped pattern as you can see in the pick below. Also just tighten each screw bit by bit and not all at once, as in going 1 2 3 4 and repeat a few times

Edit: I just noticed in the picture that your ram is not in dual channel mode, you need to move the second ram stick over one slot

Thanks for the help. I am going to grab some paste when microcenter opens at 11. Hopefully, it works out.

Wow, I should be up for the Darwin award for computers. I had the fan directly connected to the motherboard instead of having the pump. Computer is running perfectly and the cpu is idling around 29 degrees C.
