XU4 heatsink and fan replacement

Post by g1l »

I just bought Connectland-VEN-CNL-CHIPSET-MG2 heatsink and Noctua NF-A6x25 fan.
I found a comment on amazon for the same heatsink used on odroid xu4 that says: "Fits perfectly on my Odroid XU4 with thermal paste and a plastic cut-out around the chips to be cooled."
My plan was to just put thermal paste on the cpu then mount the heatsink... just like the stock one I removed. But now I'm not so sure anymore.
Do I really need to cut some plastic e place it around the chips? And Why?
Which other chip do I have to put thermal paste on?

I have no idea since we don't have the same heatsink.

Thermal grease should be pasted on A & B only.
