Before reusing a processor that was removed from another system board, wipe the thermal grease from the processor with an alcohol cleaning pad, and dispose of the cleaning pad after all of the thermal grease is removed.NoteIf you are applying new thermal grease on the top of the processor, make sure to do it after the alcohol has fully evaporated.
Apply the thermal grease on the top of the processor with syringe by forming four uniformly spaced dots, while each dot consists of about 0.1 ml of thermal grease.Figure 1. Proper shape of the thermal grease
