Hello All, I finally upgraded my standard Aluminum heat sink to a copper one. My question, after booting the PC is running a bit hotter then normal idle. How long does it take for the Paste to set in and for you to get accurate temperature readings? I thought I read a post here once before that mentioned it takes time before everything starts to run well. I haven't tried any gaming, still afraid to put a load on the CPU. It was already a big pain in the butt and had to remove the motherboard for the new heat sink.
Any info is appreciated, and to all those that helped with my earlier post, thanks, finally upgraded
