Default Re: heatsink isnt very impressive...

well after messing around with it i realised what the problem is, since all the heat will be near the bottom because thats where its going to be most hottest i couldnt get the fan to go down that far because the clips were in the way, so i took the motherboard out again and put a higher cfm fan in and bent the clips a little and got it to go as low as possible and right now im running prime 95 and not going over 45C now i can be one of the many to say this cooler owns
