Ok i have a q6600 with an artic cooler heatsink and fan, i was getting 45ish idle and since this was my first built PC i used lots of thermal paste. So today i decided to go back and reseat, cleaned off all the thermal paste with rubbing alcohol then did the -------- line using very little since its a quad. btw im using AS6. So i turn my PC thinking ohhh cant wait to see what my temps and be and im shocked to see they are at 55c IDLE!!!!!. What the hell happened and how can i fix it?!
