  • 16. Step 7 – Clean existing thermal paste from the CPU
    Using a non-abrasive cloth (so you don’t scratch the CPU), apply some CPU cleaning solution to a cloth and carefully clean away ALL existing thermal paste.
    Other chips on the motherboard may need paste removing too, but make sure they don’t already have thermal pads (small sponge-like squares), these do not need to be removed!

  • 18. Step 9 – Applying thermal paste to CPU
    1. Only a small amount of paste is required
    2. A business card is the best tool to smooth-out the paste
    3. Apply a small piece of paste to the centre of the CPU and carefully smooth-out the paste equally across the top of the CPU using a business card to create a thin layer.
    Make sure just the top of the CPU is fully covered.
