This. Take the HSF off, wipe down the CPU and HSF thoroughly with a paper towel and/or rubbing alcohol if you're feeling special. Next, across where the die sits put a VERY thin rice sized amount on the HSF and smoosh it onto the CPU (meaning put the thing onto the cpu but dont take it off to examine how you did). Attach HSF per instructions included with HSF and you're done. If this doesn't fix the issue either you're doing it wrong, the processor is defective, or you somehow received the only defective thermal paste in the world.

Good luck.

So here's what I did:

1. Cleaned the HSF.
Cleaned HSF (Click to show)

2. Cleaned the CPU.
Cleaned CPU (Click to show)

3. Applied the paste... Note: That looks thick but it's thin.
Thermalpaste (Click to show)

4. Put the HSF back, according to the instructions.
HSF attached (Click to show)

Will still get the paste + new HSF though.

I tried running BF3, and really shocked when I saw 94C in the max temp.

So I removed that one (the 4 pics above) and installed again. The interesting fact, is, even Junko said it's too much, it didn't get spread evenly. Looks like the HSF is putting too little pressure...

I'm running BF3 now to check again.

Don't forget all 4 pins have to say a "click" sound when they're fully engaged smile.gif If they didn't, it's not tight enough. My experiences with the Intel cooler is that it's always super tight.

Seems like I'd keep this until I got the new HSF.
