So I managed to fix the problem. I took the motherboard back to the retailer and they replaced it no questions (for a rev 2.0
) and I bought some Cooler Master Thermal Grease.
Everything works now, except my CPU temps are at about 50/45/45/45 at idle... :O. This is crazy!
I didn't apply the thermal grease according to the packet's instructions because it was really confused involving some sort of sticker template + putting the thermal grease on the heatsink so I just applied it how I would with arctic silver.
Anyone got idea why there are such ridiculous idle temps? Also has anyone heard of this Cooler Master Thermal Grease stuff, is it good?
