Ok another n00b question from little ole me. Is the sticker on the AMD 64 CPU that I installed going to mess up the heatsink at all. I doubt it since that is where they said to put it. I know it was something I probably didnt have to put on but I did. Should I have left it off?

yeah the sticker that they give you is for you to put on your case. if you put it on the cpu (like the ads show) itll mess up the heat transfer.

Ok thank you very much for your help.

/screams as he has to take off the heatsink to remove the damn sticker.

I knew that was a bad idea. Im a moron.

yeah, take that off and put some Arctic Silver thermal compound on the cpu before you put the heatsink back on.....that'll do a world of good.
