I have a problem... I have a AMD 64 3400+ socket 754 and with the cooler I had on, I would get between a CPU temperature of 50-55 C. I though it was way to hot, so I bought this one.
The Zalman CNPS7000B-AlCu
Now I get between 58-63 C! I don't know what the problem is. I cleaned the processor with alcool, after I did put a thin layer of the thermal paste that came with the hsf, it's called Zalman Thermal Paste I think. After, I screwed the heatsink on top of the cpu. Not with the backplate, because I already had a bracket on wich I could screw the HEatsink on, and it fits perfectly,
Any help would be much much apreciated,
Thank you very much!
