No, it will not. The celeron is below the P4 in processing power and cache.

Do you have a thermal pad instead? As it would overheat badly w/o anything, as there isn't complete contact between the CPU and heatsink.

(why not get some artic silver 5, its hardly expensive.)

And FSB doesn't matter, it is how it performs in benchtests.

You are spending more money on a worse processor! You don't even need the expensive stuff. I got some cheap Akasa thermal compound, as I couldn't find my AS5, and I didn't want to wait for a new syringe to be delivered.

seriously. You're downgrading for more money. All you need is a good way to transfer heat.

I took the heatsink off my CPU and there was all this grey stuff on it. So I rubbed a little off. Then I realized it might be important, so I stopped. Now I know it's important. So if I'm missing some paste, is that bad? Do I need to cover the entire surface area of the processor?
