Man, I hope this doesn't sound too dumb... FOP question
On the bottom of my FOP38 there is a rectangle of a pinkish layer of stuff. Is this some kind of factory thermal compound, or a protective coating that should be removed? It really looks too thick and viscous (it's a goo, not a peel off plastic thing) to be thermal compound, but then again, it seems to resistant to removal to be a protective coating.
If it's thermal compound, wouldn't the Artic Silver I have do a better job anyway? Oh, and the bottom of the FOP (at least the part I that is exposed) is pretty rough... probably a coarse sanding job from the factory. Is it a good idea to lap Globalwin heatsinks?
