I read through the guide, but might have to again. It was sort of confusing. I will re-seat it, and put just ONE dot in the center of the i7, size of a grain of rice I believe??
soul: I did what you said, and I got temps of (in order) 68 C, 66C, 64C, and 62C. I ran Prime for around 5 minutes.
EDIT: After 8 minutes or so, I was at 70,70,69,69, and my computer suddenly just shut off. Apparently not stable? And very hot.
