So do you guys think i can oc my cpu now with these temps i recorded to 4ghz at the least and possibly higher...

Or should i try to reseat my cooler :'( (I would need to figurre out how to clean it -_- )

Also by the way is it possible i put too much thermal paste? I did 2 vertical lines on the heat pipes and a small dot in between them..

If i do reseat it, should i get another thermal paste? Do you suppose i should use my finger with a plastic bag to spread it? Or just use 2 vertical lines? What is the best according to you guys that have gotten good results?

Sorry for all the questions its just i want to be sure because its my first build with oc'ing
