Default Re: cpu temp too high?

normally a side fan is an inlet as it feeds directly to the cpu cooler area

I still reckon those temps are highish but your pc is less likely to reset because of a thermal incident now

i know this is what you guys were talking about yesterday but.... i am going to change my heatsink soon because i am still using the stock and wanna upgrade. but on what you guys said about the turning. i originally spread my paste, but i used arctic silver and that is the same thing this guy used.

anyways that stuff when i originally aplied it was so thick, will that really spread out over the chip enough. i can understand if that was normal past.

basically i'm loking if i should reaply some on when i change the heatsink

i know this isn't my post so i'm not gonna side tract you from your main question of the original poster, but when i take off my old heatsink what is the sign that i should put on more thermal paste or leave it how it is

and put on the normal dime size worth??

or is it good practice to always put a little on because the heatsink is more than likely to pick some up with it plus it's been used for a while.

Yep looks like it, you may get 3-4C more (if that) so unless your airflow is able to be improved (or you go for a different cooler) I guess it's going to be "normal". I'm a little concerned about the temperature probe, where exactly is it mounted?

You should clean off the old (I use a cotton bud, Q-Tip ? and isopropyl alcohol) and apply new every time you seperate the cpu and heatsink.

On page 1, post number 9 (click here) is a link to the instructions on how to apply AS5 to his cpu.

EDIT: For the benefit of others who may read this the application method linked earlier and above are for the OP's P4 cpu, the methods for dualcore and quadcore cpu's are different, you can navigate to them from the link below

In regards to CPU temps, I've updated the Stickie in the Processor section. It has info on all Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad. AMD Athlon X2 using Brisbane core (65nm) remain the same.
