CnQ is off. i even set the CPU fan to 100%, including all of my case fans to 100% as well. CPU fan is 3,200RPM.
the thermal paste is the right amount (since AMD put it on) and im pretty sure the HSF and thermal paste is applied correctly. tho, i was having some problems installing the HSF at first. i couldnt really get it in right, so i took it off my CPU and then some thermal paste was on it but then i put the HSF back on and installed it from there.
