Sorry if i have asked this b4 but i am not a gamer or editor just regular computer user. is it necessary to have thermal paste and a heat sink on a pc I am building? If yes, is a heat sink that is about 10 years old good enough to use and will it hook up ok?

thx

Yes, you ALWAYs need thermal paste, and make sure any and all old thermal paste is removed from any CPU/heatsink you are using.

As far as your 10 year old heatsink, I cannot say for sure without knowing the exact hardware you are running. I would bet against it, but it is possible, but I would have to know what heatsink you have and what exactly you plan to put it on.

On further looking I assume your talking about the build you just did. I would still need to know what kind of heatsink your talking about. If not if you go to your original build thread you will see I recommended a heatsink that will work with your system.

Yes, Intel retail CPU boxes come with a suitable heatsink and fan (with a few exceptions).  So you should be OK.

Intel heatsinks are not "multi-fit" - they are for specific processor and socket types.  The part number quoted is for an old socket 775 heatsink.  It will not be suitable for use on a socket 1151 CPU.

what jonuk said. If your not happy with the CPU included there is a host of aftermarket heatsinks available for cheap.  :D
