I live in the UK and have no idea what a radio shack is, but I'll give it a shot! thumb.gif Thanks! biggrin.gif

Yeah sorry bad advice didn't realize you weren't in the states. I hope you have somewhere you can run and grab a tube, bummer if you have to wait for shipping. Best of luck.

1. remove cooler
2. carefully remove any thermal compound on both CPU and cooler(and make shure you dont get any of it on any of the other PC hardware!)
3. take a fine fibred cloth and apply some rubbing alchohol to it(small amount!)
4. rub over the CPU and cooler again
5. apply new tim to CPU only, using the "pea size dot in the middle" method
6. reseat your cooler, make shure its properly seated(but dont use force!) and screw it in place. The thermal compound will spread itself evenly across the surface when you tighten the coller down
7. connect any cables(if any), and start your PC
8. check temp

TIPS: if you dont have any thermal compound atm. look after a thermal compound with good reviews and non-conductive ingredients(my recomandation; arctic cooling MX-4 or Noctua NT-H1)

The H60 isn't going to magically give you the better performance of "water cooling". A CM Hyper 212+ will match the H60 and almost match an H80. However, it should beat the stock cooler.

Managed to get some thermal paste, but not Arctic. It was the only stuff there, called "Atrix Thermal Compound"... Really annoying, could buy the other stuff online, but can't really wait until Monday to get it! :/
What kind of a difference in temperature am I looking at? I've heard its more important how you apply it, rather than which paste you use...?

Great! Thanks mate! thumb.gif

As long as I can now overclock without having to worry about my PC melting, I'm sure I'll be fine. wink.gif

Thanks for your help, and to anyone else who helped.
Rep coming your way! smile.gif

ETA: We have success! Idle is 27C at the moment and I would think it would keep going down, as at the moment it's only been a few minutes after boot up.

Thanks guys! Much appreciated! biggrin.gif
