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?
