Got new heatsink.. confused about temp's
K Got my new Kingwin heatsink and put a tornado fan onto it. its loud :\. Ok with the stock heatsink, I would have idle temp's of down to 31C. Now, if my computer is left on with no programs running and with the screensaver going, it is at 38C. Full load is up to 42C.... full load used to be up to 50C.
So with stock heatsink/fan, I had lower idle temperatures, but higher load temperatures.
Did I put too much TC on? I just wiped whatever was on the stock heatsink off and put it on my new one, then put it on.. the processor was already covered in it..
Well I don't know, I was expecting it to be cooler than 42C. on load with a tornado on it.. so I'm about to just take it off.
