Re: Heatsink Zalman question
if that is idle temps that is a great drop in temps. Usually the big difference in temps comes from the load temps and not as much from idle although there will be a drop.
1. what are your load temps?
2. it wont be as tight as the stock heatsink
3. you need to hook it to the CPU fan pins in order to get rid of the error message it will be fine being 3 pin or 4 pin just make sure the clip is lined up correctly to make sure you are on the right pins.
4. is your processor OC'd?
