Well I can already see that 3.5 is too much. I will have to find a good heatsink.

I ran stress for maybe 10 min and it hit 60 C. Might try going to 16X or so.

Nice, have you tried this cooler?

And is the thermal paste included worth using?

TX-2 is the best out there right now, and the core contact is one of these best air coolers out on the market for the cost.

before putting any paste on, be sure you read the directions and know how much to use. some pastes require more than others, and this TX-2 is different than AS-5.

How do you guys normally take the paste off the old CPU? Last time I did this was on an Athlon X2 3200 and I have Artic Silver on it and was a major pain to get off.

Isopropyl alcohol for the win. I assume the higher the %, the better.

Alright cool. Will have to try that out. I'm going to order that heatsink next week sometime and see how well it performs on my 940
