you need a motherboard with the correct socket type for the cpu, so for ryzen am4 cpu's you need an am4 socket motherboard. :- https://www.singular...amd-socket-am4/

 

 

I can install heat-sink and fan but WITH-OUT put the THERMAL INTERFACE MATERIAL for test, and after ready to install OS put this material, attach heat sink and fan, open PC, if again all ok install the OS?

no, you always install the cpu and fit the heatsink and fan with thermal paste, then never remove heatsink and fan unless you have a problem. thermal paste will probably already be applied to the bottom of the heatsink and will just need fitting if not then you will need to add thermal paste before fitting the heatsink.

just for info.

from my understanding with amd ryzen cpu's if the code ends with box it comes with heatsink and fan and if it ends with wof then there is no heatsink and fan included so you will need to buy one as well.

so looks like all the x family cpu's don't come with a heatsink and fan same as all new intel k cpu's don't.

That's a good tutorial.

 

Only thing I would add is the use of Anti static mat!!

It is easy you need to be careful though. The paste acts as a seal. If you pull or twist the fan as you remove it you can damage the pins / connectors on the chip. You will also have to clean all thermal paste residue off both the chip and cooler base with proper cleaner and not nail varnish remover (iso propyl alcohol) as this can leave a residue. You then have to reapply fresh thermal paste before refitting the fan.

Yup! I use rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) to remove old thermal paste all the time. ;)

And nigsy is right, be careful when removing the heatsink/fan, I've never bent any pins on a processor or socket, but I HAVE yanked CPU's right out of the socket! :yikes: ***note: I learned to be more careful after that episode!

About Intel K processors eg 7600K... i5

installation of this is Exactly like, non-K processors? Needed anything special for K processors - or is it anything more difficult BUILDING A PC with K processor ????

All processors install the same. It doesn't matter whether it's Intel; AMD or what ever.

As long as you have the correct board and socket type; you simply line the CPU as per the manufacturers instructions up and drop it in.

 

Watch the video Terry linked to; it's actually a pretty decent tutorial. :tup:
