Hi everyone it's my first time here, I just ordered componets for a new build, DH55HC intel 64bit 1156 MB, i3-540 64bit processor, 4Gb crucial memory, Rosewill smartone case, and an RG530-S12- 530 PS. I'm not a gamer so these componets will do me fine. My question is do I need to add heatsink compound to the processor before i install it or does intel processors come with their own compound already installed. It's been about 5 years since my last build, so my memory isn't so good. Thanks in advance.
The stock cooler comes with CPU paste already on it.
