Just rub some an and wipe it off) on both the heatsink surface and CPU IHS. You are then good to go

When you go to the autostore, there should be 2 kinds of sandpaper. One that comes with 1 type of grit and the other that come with an assortment ranging from 220-1000 grit

just remember:

Sanding in circles will make it flat, but not shiny.

Sanding in a reciprocating motion will produce a less even surface, but more uniform valleys, and therefore shinier surface.

I just went for shiny because going in circles scuffs things up alot and it looks fugly.


Remember to mark an X on your Heatsink base with a marker and keep checking it to make sure you lap the entire base.
