So I have an AMD 9590 which came with a Liquid Cooler and everything worked just great, idle temp around 35c never went much above 40c at full load. So I had to reposition the cooler to make room for another HD 7950 and I had to move the heat sink/pump/whatever you want to call it, so naturally I replaced the thermal paste which was just the stock TIM that came preinstalled on the copper plate from the factory. Now I know this CPU is a 220W power monster but now I idle at around 40-41c which is a huge difference from being around 35c idle. I would just like to know where can I get or even find out what kind of TIM AMD ships with their water cooler because I would very much like to get some of this stuff because the TIM being the only thing I really changed. I would think that would be the problem, also I replaced it with Antec Formula 7 Nano Diamond Compound and have also tried arctic silver 5 both of which are idle with a temp around 40-42c. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated, I just want it to run like it used to.
