    It could be the danger of contaminating the pins with the
    paste. You are not even supposed to get the grease
    from your fingers on the pins, so thermal grease/paste
    would also be ruled out.

    Thermal grease/paste are not mentioned here. This is a
    10MB download! I believe this document was created by

    http://www.asus.com.tw/pub/ASUS/mb/775CPU Installation.pdf

    The manual for the Zalman 7700 does mention using thermal grease.


    This Swiftech installation guide also uses thermal grease.
    They use Arctic Ceramique.


    I guess you will have to use your own judgement, as to whether
    there is a chance the grease will fall down onto the pins.
    Maybe if you apply a dot of grease to the very center of the
    processor, it won't spread all the way to the edges ? Don't
    spread it with a credit card, but let the compressive force
    of the heatsink to spread it out. If you don't let the grease
    get near the edge of the processor, maybe you can prevent it
    from getting on the pins ? Most of the heat will be in the
    very center of the heat spreader.

    Don't waste download time on this one. The same information
    is stored in the file twice, meaning 5MB of this download
    is totally unnecessary!

    The file is the same one as provided by Intel, and should have
    been shortened by Asus a bit.

    Do you mean comp.sys.intel ?
