Default Should I.....

should i remove my cpu heatsink/fan and apply thermal grease stuff? AS5 i think its called...i didnt apply it when i built the computer and i have some now. ALSO, i just got a tempmonitor/fan controller, and i am wondering where u put the little temp sensor on the cpu/heatsink? i tried in the slots of heatsink, but it says 37c, while speed fan says 46c...any ideas are helpful

WHOA WHOA WHOA, are u saying you didnt put any paste on when you got computer. IF you didnt then put it on anyway you could drop your temps to 10 degrees celcius maybe on load and idle, if your lucky......

I heard you squeeze temp sensor between hsf and cpu and usually it just makes the gap.
