Yeah stock... I have the xigmatek dark knight. It is pretty warm in this room. I will open a window and test again in the morning. How long does ArticSilver 5 last in a package?

With that cooler I would expect around 12-15C above ambient temps on idle. I have some AS5 in a sealed tube that is 6 years old and is still fine.

Okay... I must have applicated it wrong. I spread it with a old debit card around the base of the cooler. I will re mount. Here are temps at ambient temp.

Default Re: HOT!

better but what are your ambient temps?

Ambient temperature is the temp of the room that the computer is in.
Based upon your idle temp I would say room temp should be around 30C or 86F

They run a bit hot but It would be nice to have it idle in the high 30'sC

They are still acceptable temps. I idle at 39C at 3.4
