CPU Temp

In Everest Ultimate it shows the CPU and CPU Diode
i know that you should look more at the CPU Diode as that is the actual temp of the CPU.

for an AMD Athlon 3500+ temp ranges from 95F - 35C at idle to 100F - 37.7C but would on occasion jump up to 102F - 38.8C
this all is well with in bounds of the CPU

I just installed a RocketFish Universal CPU Cooler and added a second fan for the push pull configuration. and used the thermal paste that came in the package.

Product picture and description is below

my question is how much more can i expect my CPU temp to drop in the next few days after the thermal paste sets?

on a side note the bottom plate that comes in contact with the CPU is made kind of oddly the base is aluminum and 3 copper pipes and the copper pipes run through the middle of the aluminum base but the surface is not flat - where the pipes are there are crevices i cant find a pic to show what i am talking about so i uploaded one to photobucket for a rough view of what i am talking about and can be viewed here:

sorry its such a crude drawing but it should provide adequate information for what i am talking about.

1. How much the temperature will drop depends on the performance of the cooler and how professional you are at installing the cooler.

2. Apply the thermal compound in the way shown below:

Thank you for the info.
i will have to re mount now because i only put a 1\2 pea size on the center copper pipe, but your method looks better.
btw where did you get the pics? did you take them or did you get them from a site? if from a site could you please provide the link for some more reading?

WOW! i just finished applying the second time and i have to say i already see a big difference! I may have to do it a 3rd time just to get the method perfected because my temp now goes as low as 90F but easily reaches up to 100F and spiking all the way up to 108F which is higher than the original high of 102F but lower than the original 95F.
maybe i did not apply evenly or pack the groves good enough before hand.
i will run it the way i have it a day or two to let the thermal paste set before i decide though.

again thanks for the help.
