RockPro64 Case 2x3.5" HDDs and 2x2.5 HDDs
#35
Hello everyone! Well I finally bought all the things on the list and got this NAS case!

But now that I have it this hardware noob has a question (and may have more later I'm sure). In the attached picture shows what came with the heatsink from the Pine64 shop. I have not been able to find any information anywhere on the Pine64 site about how to use those included items. At least the packet says what it is so I could search for information about it but the grey pad took a bit longer (I gather now it is likely a thermal pad?). In any case I was hoping I could get some help here.

How do I install the heat sink so it works best with this case? Do I just use the thermal pad? Do I just use the thermal compound? Do I use both and if so in what order? (heatsink-pad-compound or heatsink-compound-pad) Any other things to be aware of when use these items? (I hear if this compound is conductive, no idea if this one is, then there is a risk of a short. How might one mitigate this?)

Thanks in advance for ANY advice on this. Cheers!

Update 1:
Once I knew which terms to search for a found some helpful links. This was a good one:
