guys,

simple question, but haven't installed a CPU since ages:

got myself a pentium d processor, with the stock intel hs/f which had a thermal pad on it.

put it on.
then, made a mistake: took it off again. obviously, this messed up the cooling.

do i now need to clean the CPU and hs/f and apply a new thermal pad, or can i use some thermal paste instead? am a bit unclear about this... thanks for any answers!

A pad is typically a one use item. Clean it all off and make sure you use 70% or better isopropyl alcohol. Then apply thermal paste.

Thermal pads are designed to be simple and to work, but paste can do a better job and is usually better (when you get high quality paste like Artic silver 5 or Ceramique)
