Reading on this website: "In no case, a thermal pad and thermal compound should be used together."

I couldn't work out if they meant that you should always use the compound [B]and[/B] a pad or only one of them? Please help before I inadvertantly blow my new CPU up!!

Very new to all this upgrading malarky! ;o)

It should say:
"In no case should a thermal pad and thermal paste be used together."
So the answer is: Only use one or the other. Thermal paste is better than a thermal pad, if applied properly.
