right i have put some Thermal compound on (OCZ Ultra, silver thermal compound) and temps are still the same (51'C)

i have also noticed that Speedfan and TAT are giving 2 different readings on my CPU temp.

Speedfan shows ~43'C idle whereas TAT shows 52/53'C on both cores.

i cut off the 100% load at 66'C again to be safe.

Just before i turned off to put on some Thermal Compound on something strange happened; the temps in TAT increased very quickley to 68'C at which point i shut down the pc, this was with no load on the CPU.

Only thing to do now is Zalman...

EDIT: also when i put CPU under 100% load from TAT Speedfan shows load temp as 52'C
