I recently took my 3700 off of a Gigabyte nforce 3 board and installed it on a new KN8. On the old board it idled at 102-105f load 112-120f. On the new board it idles at 96-100f but gets as hot as 155f under load. Checked the heatsink mounting and replaced the artic silver, but still get the high temps. When I removed this cpu from the old board the factory paste stuck it to the heatsink and they came out together. Anybody else getting these high temps or did the forced removal screw up my processor? Anyone?
