Try clicking Configure or Automatic Fan speed. You may be able to speed that fan up.

You should always have a fan on your heatsink.

Yeah, you always put your heatsink on, but some heatsinks can work well without a fan, though they tend to be the expensive ones.

My new heatsink/fan came today, but we weren't here to get it, so its gone back to the depo Tommrow there going to try again...
