Default Re: CPU FAN/HEATSINK combo ideas?

Well then i think before you buy anything you should resit the heatsink with some AS5, see what that does for the temps, and if it doesnt help then go for another heatsink.
If you heatsink is on properly i dont understand how your temps are so high, was anyone else wondering this?

By a mere 1C in most cases. Either way, the SI-120 is still pretty good.
