Re: Questions about thermal paste.
You can leave the CPU in or take it out.
Any paste like AS5, MX-4, ect are all good and perform very similarly to the rest.
The best way to clean is use a coffee filter or qtips to take the old paste off both the CPU and heatsink, then use 91% isopropyl alcohol with qtips to make sure both surfaces are completely clean.
WHen that is done put a small grain of rice sized amount of paste in the center of the IHS and then put the heatsink on. You do not need to spread.
