ML350 G4 CPU heatsink installation

I got second CPU and heatsink for my ML350 G4. The heatsink comes with a transparence plastic tape on top of the dark color thermal pate.

I check with the original CPU heatsink shiped with the machine, it has the transparence plastic tape on it too.

The CPU runs quite hot, with temperature reading around 61 ~ 69 degree C at no load to light load.

Is it correct to install the CPU heatsink with the transparence plastic tape?

Hi JohnYu

Transparent plastic tape is thermal pad and thus should not be removed. You should check cooling fans and environment for proper cooling
