    Hi guys im currently installing my i7 but i forgot to get thermal paste, can iinstall the stock cooler without it, i see it comes withs a bit on the stock cooler bottom, is that enough?

    I wont be overclocking until i get some thermal and new cooler, so can i just install it with the lil bit of thermal paste currently on the stock cooler?

    Yes it would be fine at stock clocks. But its always best to buy an after marker cooler and thermal grease.

    Yeah, they only put a lil cuz that's the only thing you need.

    Same thing if you wanna use your own paste a thin layer is way enough...

    I just really hope you won't be overclocking with the ridiculous stock HSF.....I didn't use Intel stock HSF for years...I hate their push pin system that bend your motherboard, i never liked it!
