sometimes if you put a crappy thermal paste, or you just put too much of it, it will act as an isolator instead of a conductor....


A. Get a GOOD thermal paste or pad, like the AS5

B. Make sure you apply it equaly and not TOO Much of it!

ok how do u apply it equally? and befor i even put any paste on it it was running at like 70c in the bios.
So what else i ahve adjusted it tightened and loosed the screws for the heatsink and doesnt seem to gfet any better.
