I would suggest you guys take off your heatsink, clean your cpu, then re-apply your thermal paste. I think I used too much but my system stays cool anyway so I am leavin mine
It is probably an issue of not getting good conductivity through your paste. That or you have terrible cord management and it just gets hotter and hotter inside your system.
Another possibility may be that you have your fans set to intake without enough set to exhaust which is building up heat in your case. Just a thought :freak:
