hmmm

sorry to go off topic, but

with the AF7, can I just use the thermal paste that's on it? Then I don't have to use AS5 and mess up like every other time :|

and doesn't it have those snap on plastic things that make it so much easier to install?

I have horrible temps with my e4300...\

right now, it's at 41C idle...

I'm sure that new HSF will help.

Hopefully going today to check out cases, and if none that are good are in my price range, I'm getting a new HSF

anyways, if you want cheap, get artic cooling. If you have the dough, the tuniq + 120mm fan
