Default Re: cpu temps high?

SUCCESS!!!! TY to all those who helped me, The error was in the thermal past application. I finally took the advice of a few ppl on here who told me to just put a pea sized blob on the cpu, and let the heatsink block squish it out to where it needed to be. That is what I did, and the cpu is now at 67dC at full load! Thanks to everyone, especialy slaymate for their patience aand expertise.

I'm glad you got it figured out

Now that your temps are cooler, if you still plan on overclocking this might help. i7 Overclocking Guide

If you have any questions just ask
