About a month or two ago I purchased a 3.2GHz p4 w/HT and 1,b cache. I also have 1GB Corsair DDR400 ram and a 120gb hdd. My CPU has been idling at about 57C/136F and under load goes to about 70C/158F. I thought the readings were off (someone suggested so) and yesterday took out the heatsink to see if it was hot... Well it was VERY hot
The readings must be right and now I have a problem. There was barely any of that goo substance so I thought maybe I should buy some thermal gel or a new heatsink. If you guys could recommend anything other than liquid cooling I'd really appreciate it. Also someone recommended undeclocking but I don't know how to do that.
