That's not bad and as long as it stays around where it is, it's still OK.
Temps could be improved with different/better cooling and that will give you an extra cushion between running too hot and having safe temps. 55c is the standard norm most state as being the limit so there is room for improvement but as is, it's not a big deal as long as temps under load don't go any higher the what you have now. As for TIM/paste, reapplying it sometimes helps and will make a difference.
Yes, cheapo paste/TIM will cause problems, always go with good TIM whenever possible.

Thank you, man. Alright then, we will see if this will run steady now. Ordering some paste in a few days. smile.gif

Brought temps down a bit. Realized my fans were all on Low to keep quiet while watching movies and stuff, and keep it on overnight. Now when you think about it, it doesn't sound THAT loud, it's worth the extra performance. Now they're most on Medium and get much better temps.

Brought down VCore to 1.408v (jumping from 1.392 to 1.408) from 4500. Still stable, brought down temps, on full load now it's between 50-52c. Barely 50c while playing BF3. I'm pretty satisfied. smile.gif

Thanks, seems like I'm on the right way. You think I would be able to get it to 3.1-3.2 without getting so much more temperatures?

Working on 3.1GHz right now. One thing I noticed is that the PCI-E bus is 167Mhz, could this damage something?

No need to get over 3.2GHz really, and will make that with this cooler, will get a new one in a while for sure.
