I went through the same issue with my now deceased 3570K with AS5. It absolutely hated AS5, but seems to love Ceramique 2. Temps dropped considerably between the two. I just wanted to get some opinions on the temps, and if it would be worth it to switch to Ceramique 2. I know laptops / notebooks run hot due to the limited space, but having the fan at full speed while watching an HD youtube video is kinda annoying.
What do you guys think, tear it down and re-do the thermal paste or just leave it alone?
I've also done the obvious. Its kept clean, in a smoke free environment so I know the HSF isn't clogged up.
