Hey, i was just wondering how important it is to have the that goo stuff between your heatsink/fan and your processor? I am running an amd 1.4 athlon and have a volcano heatsink but lost the goo stuff that comes with it. Is there anything i can use in replace of this?
any help would be greatly appreciated

1. Turn off your computer.
2. Goto the computer store nearest you.
3. Purchase more "goo"
4. Remove fan/cooler and apply "goo"
5. Else, say goodbye to CPU

Should also take care in replacing the goo (such as Artic Silver) as too much, too little or uneven application will prevent or limit good heat transfer.

It's called "thermal grease", nad it helps to disipate heat off of your processor. If you don't have thermal grease, you take the risk of overheating your proceesor, and that would be bad.
