Hi everyone,

I am currently running i7 950 with temps averaging 36-42c during idle and with prime 95 at 77-83c. I just newly apply arctic silver 5 instead of intel hsf TIM so there isn't any curing time yet. Would like to know is this temps range normal with intel hsf that comes with the chip without taking the curing time of AS5 into consideration?

Thanks for any comments.

Thanks for the reply, will try your method after I reach home from work but am pretty sure my hsf are sitting nicely though .
