Make sure you put the heatsink on properly also. Just clean all that crud off of there and start again. And make sure you monitor your cpu temps.

My Generic heatsink had that pink thermal pad. All it did was choking my CPU with temps of 75-80C

Fixed it!, thankyou for your suggestions , i used metho spirits, to rub it off, damn i hate those Intel heatsinks, they come with this cheap ass heat pad, and it's hard to secure ("tooless design").

I even managed to play Battlefield 2 woot!. Although again, am gonna say it again,

MICROSOFT, YOU SUCK OK?

Bah, i hate Windows, this is the story,
I installed Windows XP, with no problem, activated it. Then after, i started installing all the drivers , CD's etc etc. I restarted my com, and guess what.. it says something about Windows recognizing too much of a change rofl, sooo, it's want's to activate it again, so no problem, but this time it askes for the cd-key, i type the cd-key BUT IT TELLS ME I HAVE USED THE CD-KEY ONE TOO MANY TIMES, WTF!?!, SCREW YOU MAN, I USED IT ONCE, AND IT's CAUSE YOU ASKED ME TOO YOU LITTLE PRICK!. Yeah, i have 3 more days left for activation...

What should i do?

Looks like you'll have to use their toll free number to call them up to activate XP. It's easy and painless. I've done it many times myself. Just start up the activation process and select activate by phone when it gives you that option.
