thanks for that, I must keep in mind.. (well i have not replace the thermal compound.)
Why in the world did you remove the heatsink to just clean it? Compressed air would clean it up pretty good by itself. Removing the fane to get under it I can see, but removing the whole heatsink...?
Well I think it's good idea to do that, well my cpu temperature is lower that usual.. ( it worked) fan and heatsink are attached together, and we can
deattache and just clean it because i did not want to see dust.. I just checked temperature CPU's - 40 and motherboard's 34 well i have attached case fan too, but when i did not have that( also with dust), it was CPU's 50 and motherboard 35/6/7,
isn't it good then ??
