Yep and this is with artic silver 5
It's very hot for a northwood, however putting artic sivler 5 on it made it go up a degree because I did not completly do it right (or maybee the heatsink is soo rough)
Well w/e, because it's actually my parents and not mine, and since "I wreck computers" and crap after I took out their gfx card and didnt seat it right, it's going to continue to stay like that.
