I have posted a couple of times trying to figure out what is going on with my processor. I put a Thermal Take K8 silent boost heatsink on my processor. I have removed and reapplied my thermal grease. I have seated and reseated my heatsink numerous times. I have tried turning it around, so I know it isn't on backwards. Its doubtful it would matter which way it sat as long as it sat flush on the processor. What the heck am I doing wrong? Everything I have tried has failed. Is my fan messd up? I know my processor works fine, but the temps run at 50c, and I have not noticed anything too odd. I can't seem to get my wireless card to see my router, but maybe that is my fault. Obviously I don't really know what the heck I am doing cause this is baffling me. I built one computer before this, but nothing like this happened. I used a stock cooler with my first build and it was fine. Please some suggestions.
