My System Specs

Smile Chipset Thermal Pads

Ok folks, I need some of your expert advice.

Recently bought a nice Maximus IV Extreme from a fellow member and I need to get my hands on some thermal pads for the chipsets.

Thought I could simply ask Asus about it and don't ask me how that went,

I've never done wcing or removed the heatsinks b4, so I need someone to point me in the direction of getting the right pads and anything else I need to know.

I'm not wcing, simply want to put the heatsinks back on properly.

Thanks in advance

Yeah the guy at the pc store mentioned that but I'm not sure which to get. Daz is closed tomorrow so I'll have to wait.

I imagine he'll know the right ones and maybe a link to cleaning, applying,.....

Cleaning the paste off with iso ok?
