  1. Hi, were your temps ok with the same cooler a time ago? Or you always had barely the same temps? BTW I guess they will drop with an aftermarket cooler as the stock ones ar usually the simplest thing, but maybe the thermal paste has lost it's efficiency and replacing it should solve the problem. If you haven't done anything to the cpu, and if you had it for more than 3 or 4 years, it is very possible that the issue is the thermal paste and not the cooler.

    Now i have ordered the new one and i wonder if the temperature will fall.
    As you can see the thermal paste is dry but i knew that when i ordered a new fan.
  3. Have you already ordered a new fan? If so check to make sure it comes with thermal paste, unless you have some laying around (most do)

    If you havent ordered a new fan yet I would highly suggest a cooler master hyper 212 evo...they perform better than much more expensive coolers at a fraction of the cost.

    Something you should consider doing is get before and after temps to see the affects the new cooler has.....take idle temps and load temps using core temp or something

    I read at the reviews that it comes with thermal paste.Will it lower the temperature?

    I am not familiar with the cooller you picked out in the first post but pretty much any aftermarket cooler will lower your temps from the stock cooler setup
