That's pretty much impossible that he is getting a mere 15C with a shitty stock cooler. Even if it was water cooled he wouldn't be getting that. He was bullshitting.

Yer i'll post the new average temp when it arrives here and i get it fitted (tuesday) I presume it will come with a ready made thermal pad on it, should i leave that on and put a tad of arctic silver on the core aswell? Or forget the thermal paste and just put the heatsink on how it is..

Ok i'll do that. You recommend any chemicals to get rid of all of it after i've scraped most of it off? Thinners?
