Are the heatsinks cross-compatible?

"i have plenty of thermal grease and gel on it"
Are you saying you have two different substances on it? That's bad. And by plenty, you mean just about a drop the size of a grain of rice, correct? Any more than that is actually worse.

EEEEEEEEEK. your idle is my load with the same processor, If your greased and geled it you might have just made it worse. Umm is it possible to wipe some off? :X ive never used it before so i dont know

i run my 2600+ at 2.3ghz (3200+ speeds) and i run it 47 full load. I have a thermaltake volcano11 xasier edition and its also 3400+ compatible. Your doing something wrong there. Try putting the right amount of thermal paste on and seating the heatsink correctly. BTW yes its OCd.
