Thermal pads are cheaper and easier to deal with than thermal paste. So I first tried with a thermal pad. But the mainboard shutdown after 5 sec. because temperature was too high. I'm happy that the mainboard has this feature. I then tried thermal paste and it stayed up. Temperature is a little over 40C. I think that's normal for a 2400 AMD. The case has only the 2 standard fans - one for the PS and one for the CPU. I'd rather it had none.
