the direction is correct, although as for the temps, that is a little high, have u checked the CPU V-core in the BIOS, if it is set too AUTO, then the temps wont change much, go in and set it to the required V-core stock setting, and u should see a huge difference (hopefully).
make sure you put enough thermal paste on the heatsink. Also make sure you didnt put too much on there. It comes pre applied. My E7400 idled at 25*C at stock speed/voltage. Even now at 4.1GHz and 1.36vcore it idles at 30*C and hits 55*C under load.
ok i took the mobo out to put the cooler on... it cliped.. not that hard but i did try to spread the paste .. so should i take it out clean it and put it again+ vcore at 1.15-1.25.. i think the auto is on 1.12 ¿?
Yea, I would go for a reapply. I know its a pain pulling the mobo in/out, but thats the best way to insure the push pins go thru. Also keep in mind that AS5 takes ~140 hours of operation IIRC to cure out. I generaly try to power my system off each night for the first week to speed that up a bit. The real key is thermal cycles, the more it goes from operating temp to room temp, the faster the AS5 will cure.
yea it is a real pain.. so i´ll clean clean the cooler and the top of the processor, and reapply a bit in the middle , push down, and not turn it on alot?... should i still set vcore manually ? .. im going to ny for a week from the 19-27th so thats enough time right..
i remounted and did every thing correct.. its still at the same temp.. well this time i disabled speedsteps so its always at 3.0ghz, do i really have to leave it off so the paste could cure, because i turned of comp last night and today before remount it was reading 46 C ¿¿ help!
