If i need to also apply thermal past somewhere like MOFSETS can you tell me where that is. Also do i need to do anything to the white pads if i fix the standoffs.
Remove your existing Heat Sinks, then inspect the thermal pad, if they have small indentations or half then fix the stand offs, remove the old Thermal(yellow wax) and apply new thermal only to the SB and NB, and thats all!!
