Please fire your computer repair man. There are tons of idiots that work for large corporations. I have worked with several of them and they get by because they know enough that their idiot boss doesn't know they are stupid, or there are strong policies in place at such companies that make it almost impossible to fire someone outside of criminal activity. Don't let someone tell you they work for a good company and have you trust they got hired because they are smart.

And yes, use thermal paste.......and then fire your computer repair man again because only doing it once doesn't reflect how dumb he is.

If your load temp goes over 65c apply thermal paste again.

lul wut?

Thermal paste is essential. Just lay a nice thin layer across the backplate and on the cooler and you should be fine. Also, what RPM is your cooler running at? I mean fans when I say that.

Your temps are fine. Besides i dont think you mentioned ambient temp. (room temp) unless I missed it. Max cpu temp is something like 80C on the sandy bridge and I think thermal throttling starts at 90C.

Depending on my room temp my cpu (overclocked 1.40v) will idle anywhere from 33c to 39c. Load temps range from 59c to 70c. Room temp makes a HUGE difference, also fan speeds on your setup. If you want a little better performance put two fans on the radiator since I think yours only comes with one. I think the manual says to use it as an exhaust to hot air gets pushed out of the pc, I use the radiator fans as an intake though since the air entering after the radiator isnt very hot anyways. Doing that will help on temps too.

And YESY please always use thermal paste, and not a huge blob, just grain of rice size usually. THERE IS NOOOOOO reason to not use it, maybe your father does that because they are low powered computers and he doesnt want to worry about cheap thermal paste wearing out years later, but seriously that is poor practice. Even if you lap your cooler and cpu the metal still needs a small amount of paste. Paste fills the gaps/pours in the metal so you get the most contact patch.

The guy above is right: Don't apply alot, because it spreads evenly with pressure. If you put too much, not enough contact will be made between the cooler and the cpu, and it'll oose out the sides.
