Default My new heatsink is awesome

I was asking around in general computer/hardware about my CPU temperatures cos it was like 60 degrees, and I got told I should buy a Zalman CNPS 9500 LED and some Arctic Silver 5. They came today, and a after a fair bit of screwing around and taking the motherboard out, I got it installed. With the old heatsink I was idling at 60 degrees, and now even on the 9500's silent mode, i'm sitting on about 28 degrees. This heatsink seriously rocks.

Idle temperatures don't mean anything!! Test it under load with Prime95:

That'll show you what your temperatures are actually at when your CPU is stressed.

Great news. What CPU do you have anyway?
