thermal gel is better. scrape off the thermal pad, and put some isophyl (?) alchol stuff on it to remove it completely.

is the CPU barton or thoroughbred?

you should get some Arctic silver 5 and an aftermarket heatsink, that would help a lot with your temps. and if you get really sick of it, you could even invest in a new case, with good airflow.

well thats why its running so hot, you should seriously get an aftermarket heatsink, like the thermalright SI-97 and a decent fan to go with it. while its fairly expensive, its one of the best, if not the best socket A heatsink. and if your case is as bad as you say it is, get a new one with decent airflow.
