- Intel stock heatseak question on E6850

Does anyone know if the stock fan/heatsink has a clear plastic film
covering the thermal compound at the base? If it does, I didn't remove
it prior to installtion on the cpu. If it is there, did I damage the
cpu running it this way? There was no mention of this in the sparse
install doc that came with the cpu. But now I'm reading online threads
that say it is attached. Also, whenever the heatsink is removed does
it require a new thermal pad to be installed or can I just reuse what
thermal compound is stuck to the base.

I've never seen a plastic film on a C2D HS but then again I've only seen a
couple. I think that, if one was on yours you would have seen it?
You can't re-use the TIM if you pull the CPU. You'll need to remove the old
stuff (meths and a rag will do it) and use some after-market thermal paste.
