Pics not working man, prime will push your chip so what temps were you getting? I shut down if it hits 70'c but as you saw, 62'c is the 'limit' I also assume your not overclocking at all and are on stock voltage? **Edit, pic worked upon refresh as I posted. 40'c is a high idle temp, whats your room temps there? I'd definitely look to improving your case airflow anyway Moto
yeah i think im just gonna buy some artic silver and just repaste it. i hope i dont bend any cpu's. how the hell am i supposed to get the heatsink off the cpu the guy put like a crap load onto the cpu
He's hitting 67'c there on max Pin, I get stroppy when I break 50'c gaming :P Moto
67c is nothing to worry about. What seems hot to us is like a nice summer breeze to most CPUs.
@Ascend, undo the screws on the H/s and gently rotate it to break the seal, it should come off easily as thermal paste isn't normally adhesive. google 'cleaning thermal paste' and gluetube should have a billion videos on it for you, @Pinhead, I use 70'c as my ceiling as mentioned but I would still want as low as possible temps, I get maybe 50/52'c playing Me2 for about six hours and I rate that as hot hehe Moto
