Temps higher after removing IHS???

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't get this... I just removed the IHS from my AM2 X2 3800, and my temps are actually higher? is it just me or does that not make any sense at all?? I used to have 55-57 load temps running orthos, but now im at 60-62? I'm thinking it must have been a bad arctic silver application on my part? any ideas???

What cooler are you using? You may need to re-seat/adjust the CPU cooler.
