Tip for people who think their proc runs hot!
This probably sounds a bit noobish, (we have to start somewhere), but today, I was considering buying a new stock hsf (the new amd one with heatpipes), so first I thought, I better check how easy it is for mine to come off, (it turns out, it seems stuck to the processor...)
Anyway, so I wiggled the HSF around a bit, until I heard a kind of un-sticking sound, (I'm sure you know what I mean).
Now, my proc, at 1.3vcore, (stock), ran idle at about 49-51, which was just ridiculous, so I undervolted it, (?), and i got it down to like 44-46, so I dealt with that, (have been since easter), so now that I've sort've 're-seated' the HSF, my temps are like 36-38, so I'm very happy, when I first fitted it, it must've been a bit off somehow!
I'm still considering the heatpipe cooler...
Anyway, you probably all knew this, but I'll spread it anyway!
