I understand that the i5 cpu comes with some thermal paste already on, right out of the box. My question is: will I need to remove this paste before installing the aftermarket cooler? Or can I just apply thermal paste on the i5, then install the aftermarket cooler?
Cpu: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor Aftermarket cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
