cool, yeah I did all that, used a credit card to apply it. The thermal paste that was already on there wasn't to messed up anyway but I completely took that off and then dabbed on the thermal paste and spread it out evenly.
Also made sure the two were connecting just fine. I am a bit confused as to why it would heat up so quickly though.
The bios is set to kill at 85 degrees C
When I turned it back on from being off for how long it started at 71 degrees C and only took about 20 seconds to get to 86 and then kill which seemed to be heating faster then when it had a bunch of dust on it.
All of the other fans in the box are fine, its only about 2 months old and when I was putting on the thermal I blew off all the other fans.
All of the speeds that can be set in the bios are default of lower if I could set it lower just to make sure its not just set to run faster.
If anyone else was asking the question I would suggest they made a mistake on the application of thermal paste or the installation of the processor but since its me I would have liked to believe that wasn't the case but all signs point to the contrary.
Totally confused still, but I am going with the new heat sink fan and I am pretty confident that will fix it, I just like to understand the underlying problem, otherwise it is going to bother me
Thanks for the reply, I really wasn't sure about the fan going clockwise like that, seemed odd that it would blow the hot air back at the processor but I was just wondering I didn't know for sure.
