Incorrectly mounted cooler?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
After finally get the 212+ mounted, I get reasonable temperatures. But I think they could be better.

Ambient: ~15c

Idle:
-34c
-31c
-27c
-29c

Load ( BC2 )
-48
-48
-45
-44

For 15c ambient, I expected better. I possibly put to much MX-4 on, or just installed it incorrectly.

Hmm. I would try a reseat on the heatsink.
You know how to apply TIM on the 212+ right?
