LMAO Sorry I'm tired ... I just threw down the first link generated VIA google. But yeah you're right AS5 thermal grease was what I had originally stated and intended to link.

Although that would be funny(in a sad way) if someone actually used an epoxy instead of a thermal grease.

Thanks for catching my mistake

Thermal adhesive can be removed easily. You just use a hairdrier on the heatsink for a while until it gets enough hot and then spin it left and right till it comes off. You could always run orthros and remove it while the PC is on but you must not move the heatsink away just spin it left and right till it is able to spin and then fastly turn of the pc and ofcourse not waiting to shut down just hold the powerbutton.; thats what we did for the GPU of my friend which he foolisly GLUED together with the heatsink with adhesive.

So now I'm petrified.

For now, I installed on the stuff, memory, cpu + cooler. Except while installing I touched the silverish paste a couple of times.

I also because the cable couldn't for the fan controller had to remove the cooler once, and reattach it. The gigabyte manual says that the paste if stuck to the cpu is highly damaging. It doesn't make sense, at this point I think Gigabyte's manual has a misprint of sorts.

However, I'm scared, because I had to push down on the cooler really hard well not really really hard, but kinda hard to get it fixed. The motherboard hasn't crumbled or anything (I hope not internally) but i'll only find out tomorrow when I get my case.

Newegg was stupid sent me eveyrthing else (including the supply) a day early than the case!

I'm shaky!

I have once installed a PC without a case and worked butI hear its kind of dangerous to do it if its not placed on a right place. It was on my bed actually >> Was before I bought a second case. I am sayign this so you can tst it works ok cause it seems your worried. Ofcourse you will need the case to check temps.

Dont be too worried. You sound like you are being as careful as you can! The trick with the thermal compound is to remove it from both mating surfaces with alcohol and clean water on a cotton swab after you've removed the heatsink and fan before you re-apply. You should always re-apply whenever you have to reattach the heatsink and fan. Just as long as you dont put on too much, you will be fine. Too much and it acts like an insulator! It sounds confusing, but once you do it the first time, its easy after that.
