AS5 question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
OK im new to this and it is my 1st build. I have everything here for my build but my as5 hasn't come in mail yet. Not sure when it will be delivered cuz I just moved and forward mail is taking forever. MY question is can I go ahead and build system with stock HS/fan and then later remove the hs and apply the as5? Will I need to take cpu off motherboard (Ithink this wil be best to cleann off amd thermal compund) and when I put back in the cpu will I have any problems with having to reload Windows? I hope since it is same cpu, it will not require reloading windows.

ya it would probably be easiest to remove the cpu from the mobo. get a lint free cloth with some rubbing alcohol to clean the cpu and then put a bb sized amount of AS5 onto the center of the cpu

windows will never know you took the cpu out

just remember to ground yourself and unplug the power supply before removing and installing anything

Thanks for the response. I always unplug my computer when opening the case, and wear my esd wristband anytime I stick my hands inside. Have read up on how to remove thermal compund, and to apply as5. Looks like I get to have the fun of building it tonight, Thanks again.

yeah you're good to go.

I use ArctiClean instead of rubbing alcohol... it works much better, and coffee filters work well for a lint free cloth.
