Title:

How do I mount heat sync with thermal compound?

Text:

I am using your logic board replacement procedure (it's great!) but I am confused about remounting the heat sync. Is the blue pad under the heat sync a thermal compound? Is it reusable (mine came off completely intact.)? I bought some arctic silver 5 and read your guidelines for using it. Should I use it in conjunction with the blue pad or discard the pad and just use the compound? If I use both should I put the compound on both sides of the blue pad or just on the logic board? Thanks, photomlw
