    Question why do we need thermal glue?

    HI all, I know this is a stupid question, but why do we need thermal glue between the cpu and heatsink? the bottom of the heatsink is flat and so is the cpu. why not just put the HSF directly on the cpu?

    Question CPU cooler with no back plate

    have a i5 4670, on an OEM PC that needs a cooler. Any suggestions for a budget cooler that doesn't require a back plate(so not requiring the removal of the motherboard)? Removing the mobo in this OEM case is a glorious pain in the rear so I'm not all too interested in having to do that.
