    Reusing Q6660 processor + stock heatsink

    physicsmaestro

      Hey everyone, a friend just gave me his old Q6600 processor+stock heatsink that I plan on using in my P5N32E-SLI mobo.  I haven't put in a used processor before, and I was wondering if I need to clean the heatsink/processor and reapply thermal compound?  I have some "Electrolube silicone heat transfer compound," is this good enough?  Thanks!
