Most stock heatsinks come with a special fan that only fits on them. You would also need a new heatsink and fan. The Thermalright XP-90 or XP-90c (even better) are both very good heatsinks. Before you replace the heatsink I would try reseating it with AS5. Leaving your case open can only help.

The only thing that could be bad about leaving your case open is if you have a domestic animal living with you, if you're by a window or vent, source of dampness/ moisture.

Of course, if you don't occasionally open your case and clean it, it can be as bad.

It may also be a good idea to get a fan that's a little bit overkill. Or.....

Does your case have side panel ventilation? The best way to cool a prescott is to have either a side panel housing that fits directly over the HS and the fan is inverted to blow out of the housing. Or have a housing that connects to the rear of the case to a case fan. I've found in my installations that when I invert the fan to blow out and through the housing, it cooled much better. Some will disagree but I go with what works.

By the way, what are you using to get the CPU temp's? BIO'S? 3rd Party Software?

i use bios by restarting the computer, i think i might get some software to help, and cons about it?
