Please stop wasting my time, I have it set to alert me by email when the thread is updated. I'm trying to figure out a temporary solution to my cooling issue, if you can't help, please don't post.

Simply...not a good idea. Best bet is to take the side panels off and hope the ambient air can cool it some. Ideally by a window and hopefully you have a breeze.

lol don't waste YOUR time you say...

I think your solutions were already given to you:

1- Reseat your cooler using new TIM, it is not "permanently attached".
2- Open your case and use a fan to blow air into the case until you can get new proper case fans.
3- Get case fans.
4- Abandon this fridge quest entirely.
5- Radiator/fan setups are generally more efficient for cooling automobiles than 40.00 fanless fans from best buy.

win thread is win.

Unless you're rocking a Pentium 2 or older, your cooler is removable.

AMD CPU's are not supposed to run that hot, especially at idle. It will burn up very quickly and if it gets bad enough, it'll shut your system down.

This. There are no alternatives, you need to reseat your cooler (it IS removeable), or buy a new CPU cooler. End of story. You can order the CoolerMaster Hyper 212+ typically for around $20-30 USD or so (depends on the sale at the time). It'll keep that CPU below 50*C under a full load easily with the stock fans it comes with.

Can't order anything. Don't have any TIM on hand, It's okay though since I'm upgrading computer soon, this thread can be closed.

Bestbuy sells them for $40-100 usually around the weekend, got about 3 so far. They are all cooling my car engine right now though.

It's being run to check for failures, so no air is being pushed to it by the movement of the car.
