You think? Put your hand by it and see if it's blowing out or in.

Yeah, I hold a tissue near it... it's definitely sucking in air at the ram side. But I barely feel air coming out on the other side, maybe I just suck at feeling with my hands. Tissue got drawn towards the exhaust, so that is good.

I'm such a noob. Thanks.

Still, the temp at the moment is 64-69... Kind of high, don't you think?

That fan on the heatsink isn't a very high powered fan, that's why you're not feeling it come out the other side. It is kind of high but, That heatsink isn't very good. At least it's better than before.

I have got another cooler, which was also in my i7 core package. I doubt it will be better than my bought one... not sure though!

Any chance you could tell me how to un-clock my CPU? It is a 3.20 GHz i7, but it is running at 3.6, maybe it makes a big difference?

That's the stock cooler, I don't think it would do better.

What do you mean unlock it? Unlock the multiplier? Unlock what?

Not Unlock, un-clock. As in, it is overclocked atm. Maybe that is causing the high temperature. If I un-clock it (back to the default 3.20) maybe the temperature will be normal then?

Ohhh Un-Clock, didn't see that. Did you overclock it or did your friend?
