Yeah! It'll make alot of difference, trust me...thats what connects the CPU to the heatsink to get hot air to flow in the first place! Apply it!

you can use a razor to scrape it off but be sure not to gouge the heatsink. As to the chip it should be carefully cleaned with asoft rag and maybe just a dab of alcohol to soften it up. Just be sure to let it set so as to air dry the alchohol. When applying the new thermal paste...just a dab will do. Take just a spot on the chip so as that it will only cover the small mounting area. You do not want this to spread all over the place.

wombat, I actually saw a heatsink glued to the chip with a hotglue stick. This was driving me nuts as when it heated up the glue would heatup also and release and then when the computer was cooled a bit the glue would adhear to the chip. Finally realized what was happening when I went to remove the chip and saw that it was glued to the socket. This was done by a teenager that took some computer classes and was messing around with MOM's computer. Needless to say that MOM was not a happy camper when I showed her what happened to her computer. LOL

LADEEZ and GEENTELMEN (intentional misspelling), may I present to you:MBM 5, the cruddiest piece of crudware to roam the internet. MBM gave me readings that were not only off the charts (and thus false, try 167 F on for size lol), but it cause my computer to thus cut speed in half, which I propose is the source of my problem. And so I can save 30 bucks on some cruddy heatsink/thermal paste. I love happy endings....(In other words, if you have MBM, UNINSTALL NOWWWW!)

Glad to hear that you got it worked out. I don't think that it is MBM at fault as speed fan gave the same readings....
I think that you have a bad sensor and was getting false readings that way. The bios reading comes from a different sensor that is built into the chip itself.
