Default CPU temperature is high....

I have AMD Althon64 X2 4400+

and I use this heatsink
Thermaltake Big Typhoon
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106061
Thermaltake Big Typhoon

I have Thermaltake Armor case, w/o upgrade.

My CPU temperature is about 45.C
(Even after extreme cleaning of the case not that long time ago)

I was thinking this HS would do a better job..

Bingo, another success story from Arctic Silver. Man you gotta love that stuff, it brought my 2.8 ghz from 46 C to a steady 39 C at full load.

Since we're on the same topic, what's the max temp allowable for a Pentium 4 1.8GHz Northwood Core (I presume), cause sometimes mine hits at 82C.
