Thermal paste should fill it and you shouldn't see anything drastic go on with your temp.

Yeah, you want to push air across the heatsink.

ah ok thx, was just wondering cause after 20 runs of IBT standard

1.368 max vcore 4.0 ghz fx-6100
idle socket temp is 33c
socket temp 57c max
core temp 45c max

they seem a little high for this cooler( scythe ninja 3 )

I have little experience with scythe products, but minor scratches will not raise temps noticeably.

it shows max temp of 70c < Max and you want to stay well away from that on an FX cpu...MY fx8120 on my other computer never goes above 50.
