First of all hi everyone, great to join such a good forum. I was looking a bit of advice on what would be the best to use, thermal paste or thermal pads. I'm currently using a thermal pad that was already on my arctic freezer pro and it seems to be doing a good job, sitting around 36c. Would it be better to use the paste or just use another pad as i have never had to apply the paste before and am a bit dubious about doing it if i don't have to. Also if applying the paste would you say it's better to apply it to the heatsink or to the cpu itself. Many thanks in advance.
