As I said I have rotated the heatsink 90 degrees should I keep rotating it until I get better temps?
Cpu still running
Also I, still using a GTX 550 ti, which is VERY inefficient if you look at the power draw of a GTX 660 to and it's performance is most likely more than double!
Should I pause CPU folding and let it cool down for an hour?
I paused the cpu for about three.. Woah that fan kicks up .. minutes and it got around 55 C
It's back up
This is manhattan cpu thermal grease...
One more thing F@H related
3.2 GHZ dual core and my GTX 550 ti card usually got me 17000+ points
So I got this quad core in hopes to get to at least 20,000 well the quad is 2.8 and I'm still using the GPU but now I'm only getting 14,000 on project 8573 base credit 1668
Estimated credit 8739
Estimated PPD 6313
I think my pc just over heated and my USB ports shut down, my keyboard was lit but my mouse would not, and the keyboard did not function so I shut it down.
I'm most likely going to remove (again) all the thermal paste and put a bit less on...
