Take care............
HSF mean heatsink? ZIF socket is the holes that supose to be plug by cpu?

so it is impossible to install without taking cpu and heatsink apart?

thermal paste..... i dont have any. is this mean i cannot install without thermal paste? cant i just install it while cpu is glued in heatsink? but i cant right? due to i must pull up the silver metal lock... am i understanding right?

another question..... is it possible to do it without thermal paste? cant i jus put the cpu in and put the heatsink in? without thermal paste?
