I'm guessing its probably dust if your idle temperatures are normal though.
Yeah the inside of my case is a bit dusty, It's hard to keep the dust out of this case. There is dust stuck in the fins of the heat sink so I guess I have to take the heat sink out to give it a good cleaning, kind of a pain.
Well I cleaned some of the dust off the heat sink, not much on it. I also reapplied a thin layer of Arctic Silver. Overclocked the CPU to 3GHz 100% load seems to be holding at 67C. I guess it's better then 73C, but I wonder if it will still climb.
