Followed this guide hoping to reduce the loud fan noise from my E6400. You missed out the important step of applying new thermal paste after removing the old stuff. Also, you don't mention the other two chips under the heatsink (presume the GPU and northbridge/chipset). On mine these had spongy, compressible pads where I would have expected thermal paste or a thermal sticker. I wasn't sure whether to remove these or not, since they are quite thick - it seemed unlikely that normal thermal paste could bridge the gap. After putting everything back together the machine is still very noisy so it seems that the cpu temperature is not causing the high fan speed.

Step 4 shows how to clean the old thermal paste off the processor. The rubber squares are thermal pads. Take care not to rip or damage them, or they will need to be replaced.

Regarding the thermal pads, what replacements would be recommended? While repairing mine I saw that the thermal pad was torn and forgot to get a measure of its thickness.
