srry for the double post and all but heres the deal...i took my old busted fan off of my mobo. it was mounted via plastic prongs through the mobo. well i just looked at my replacment fan and it is only has an adhesive layer. will my thermal paste affect this? i don't really know were to go from there

Get all the thermal paste on, and just stick it straight on, dont put paste on if its got that layer, that white layer acts as thermal paste.
