i got it in september
ive never applied my own thermal paste or tried to reseat the sink (idk how or if i'd blow it up)
heres a pic of the inside
"that's if it hasn't been cleaned since you got it" I see some dust in the picture. Go to a local computer store "something like Staples" and get a can of Compressed Air its the easiest way to remove dust from a radiator.
Take it out side & blow it out, all fans, PSU & any dust you see else where.
After doing this check your temps, if there still some what high try running with the side cover off, if they go down a good bit it could be a air flow problem.
Inteller got you off to a really good start & looking much better. +1 Inteller.
I think if it is a clogged radiator you should see a great improvement in the temps right off after blowing it out.
If that was the case you should now be ready to clock back up with some much better temps.
Edit: BTW I have to blow my radiators out about every two months around here & fans.
But it does seem a bit more dusty around these parts than some other places I've been.
You may not have to do it that often but for safe measures I would clean the PC every 3 months weather it needs it or not just to be safe.
Also watching your temps after a good clean idle & load, later "say a month or 2" temps moving up some at idle & load is a sigh it may be time for another cleaning.
