Hello there. I'm new to this building computers and I'm having good fun. Although when I picked up the AMD 6 Core my hands were shaking :) 

My PC is going to be rendering HD footage around about 60% - 80% of the time (100% load Sony Vegas) What would you clever people suggest it would be nice to keep this PC for the next 3 years. So temps need to be under 70C that would be nice any suggestions?

Also the CPU is in and lever is down but on the top there is a finger print (Mine of course) shall I clean this off or am I just being silly :D 

Thanks for support :)

you gotta get some high concentration alchol and clean that print off because the tiniest bit of moisture could change cooling alot
i would suggest a coolermaster 212+ that'll keep the amd pretty cool even when oced

no don't worry about it, it's pretty standard precedure
go out and buy yourself some high concentration alcahol and just get a q-tip and clean off the cpu
normally, you'll have to do this even if you don't touch the top of the die

Hey that's gonna be not too bad of a rendering machine although I would recommend going with intel if you have the budget for that...if you dont, then that will be good as it is... :) 

To clean and prepare the surface of your cpu I would reccomend arcticlean over alcohol...alcohol works but that's if you have nothing better. Arcticlean comes in two bottles...the first is to clean any old heat paste finger prints or anything else...
the second prepares the surface for your heatpaste and cooler...and it's not that expensive...it'll come in handy later too most likely...when changing cooler or cpu or building new system...
