Thermal paste is responsible for conducting heat from the processor to the heat sink. Reassembling a computer without applying thermal paste will cause the processor to overheat, resulting in permanent damage.
Before applying a new layer of thermal paste, you must first remove any old thermal paste from both the processor surface and the heat sink.
