    That square is thermal paste applied by the factory. Just remove the old cooler and processor, put the new processor and cooler in.

    As for the lever, it's just a little mechanism that locks the cooler in place. You'll have to secure those metal tabs with the holes in them to the retention bracket, then clamp the lever down and the cooler will be secured.

    +1 for hat!

    yea the just remove the old Heatsink and fan and then the CPU

    then in reverse order put in the cpu and take the plastic off the heatsink fan bottom then install onto the retention bracket and make sure it tight and your done!

    to remove old CPU... grab cooler (undoing clips is optional), and yank as hard as possible straight back. The bond between the CPU and heastink should be strong enough to rip it out clean even with a closed socket.

    38C is fine, especially on a stock cooler.
