    Q6600 processor, heatsink & fan reinstall

    VN125250

      Hi

       

      My motherboard recently had to be sent back to the manufacturer as it developed a fault. I therefore had to remove the Q6600 processor, heatsink & fan but I was wondering that once I get the new motherboard back will I need to remove the old compond and apply a new thermal compound to the processor & heatsink? I am assuming I do need to but not sure as I have never had to do it before.

       

      Thanks in advance
