    all clips in mate, you do need to spread som paste in the back of the chip tho, to seal it to the heatsink

    To seal it???? That is not what the paste (god forbid you use paste) is there for. You use Artic Silver (preferably) to provide an effective heat transfer from the CPU to the heatsink.

    But yes it should be thin as in paper thin. Too much and it acts as an insulator.

    I'll be honest, nokia, get someone who knows how to build a PC to help you through it, otherwise you'll start blowing very expensive components very quickly.

    The questions you are asking show you've done no research whatever, don't take this as an insult of putdown, but don't even consider building a computer until you do some major research.
    here's some links.

    If you must, take some class a local vocational school should be offering, I believe it's A+ certification in the States, just to build some crap computer and fully understand what you are doing.
