Opened case cleaned off the stock thermal grease and added my own.. I'm getting 14k in 3dmark06 now. I checked my temperature's last night and noticed the cpu was at 77 degrees C; now it touches 60 when running games but doesn't go over that. So I'm guessing it was a overheating issue.. I thought the stock cooler would be enough since I wasn't planning on OCing.. sigh.. anyone recommend a cooling system?
