i think you use isapropal (wrong spelling) alcohol 91% with one of those things that you clean your ears with. Course, removing the stuff on the bottom of the stock HSF and putting AS5 or a third party HSF will void the warrenty

You should be using thermal compound, you'd notice a BIG difference, some silver paste and your sorted!

Default Re: CPU Temp

At idle before overclocking is 29 degrees. After I overclocked it, it sits idle at around 31 degrees which is nothing. At full gameplay of NFSU2 with high detail settings and resolution, my Athlon 64 3500+ overclocked reached as high as 47 degrees, but never any higher.

MY 6600GT however, went up to 72 degrees at one time depending on how long I play it for. Other games have different results depend on how I push it. Some, I get up to 50 degrees, while other games and apps rarely use anything. It fluctuates between 40-60 some odd degrees on average. Talk about hot. Under idle, that gets down to 40 something.

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
