is should cool your CPU a lot more if the thermal compound can transfer the heat better than what you have now.
It might be your HSF problem too if the thermal compound doesnt fix it.

well the compound didnt cost much so im not out alot if it is the heatsink. I have one from an old p4 that is the exact same that I can use. The shipping on that stuff actually cost more than the thermal compound itself

Well even if it is the heatsink, it's handy to have the thermal compound hanging around anyway.

Thanks guys!! the problems all fixed after applying some new thermal paste the temps back down to 33c. It was a long haul though waiting for tigerdirect to deliver it because of the weekend. Now I can get back to playing Farcry 2 which I am now addicted to lol.
