Another weird thing is, I didn't even use AS5. I just put it on with the thermal paste it was shipped with.

My A64 3500+ stock HSF uses screws to keep the fan on.

This one doesn't. It has tabs to keep the fan in place...

AS5 is the most efficient price/performance wise upgrade of all gear. period.

I thought mine did too, as there is four holes. After closer inspection, it seems there are pins in the holes...for whatever reason.

Okay, there's definately something wrong...

Those temps I gave were with the case side off, since I was doing some wire reorganizing and zip-tying...

I put the side back on... The temp goes up to 36 degrees! Take it back off... Down to 26. The side door has a vent, but I have it taped over, for a more consistant airflow... I guess I'll make a cardboard vent to my CPU fan tomorrow.

Your temps aren't going to be as low when you put the side on. Even with your cardboard vent, they will still go up.
