So i got today my Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo, the installation wasnt so hard, for the thermal paste i used the small dot on the cpu method and put the cooler just over it so the cooler spreads the thermal paste. After the installation i runed prime95 for 20minutes and the max temperature was 62 Celsius, the idle cpu temperature is 45 C, my core btw is the Intel Q9550 quad core not overclocked at 2,83Ghz. So my question is are these temperatures normal or did i put the thermale paste wrong because i saw in the forums ppl are putting the thermal paste differently and got much better results like max 50 C on heavy load.
