Re: High Temp CPU - Intel Q9550
There shouldn't be an issue getting the heatsink in there, so you should adjust that first. It'll be a tight fit and it might seem like you're breaking the board but you're not, it's meant to be like that. Also 67 isn't bad for stock cooling. If you get over 70's then you should think about investing in aftermarket cooling.
What are your ambient temps in the room?
