I just had to buy a new processor & mobo for a pc at work. For the processor, I got an AMD Athalon 64 2800+ Socket 754 processor (with the shiny black top :)). So, do I need thermal paste between it and the heatsink/fan like the old style amd processors, or will it do fine without it as the processor itself is not sticking out? Please respond fast, cause I need to get out of the office soon...Thanks in advance!
