I finally got my shiny new build in and my cooler back from RMA. The only thing missing are the GTX 680s in SLI (coming in later this week)
My problem is that after applying the Zalman CNPS12x I'm still seeing the same temperature under load that I was seeing with the stock Intel heatsink.
Under full load (using Prime95) I'm seeing about 60c as far as temps. (Ambient is around 26C) Am I expecting unreal performance out of this heat sink, or do I need to go ahead and re-seat it?
This is my first from scratch build, so the whole TI compound thing is a little nebulous for me (even after having watched a dozen videos and read enough forum posts that I'm cross-eyed)
