Seriously though, IF you are over 13 years old just unscrew those four screws, gently take off that slab of metal, clean the CPU and contact point of the heatsink, put on a tiny bit of new compound, (think grain of rice in amount) and just stick it back on and put the screws back in.

What I would also like you to do (before doing what I said above) is try and tighten those four screws. Just tighten them (GENTLY), dont force anything.
New Compound = Thermal Paste?

24 pages...just trying desperately to explain how to apply thermal paste...lol. Truly epic.

How old are you? Unless you're a really young buck, or you are very clumsy, you should be able to figure out how to do this yourself. It's not rocket science, and it's not half as hard as, say, working on a car.

Yes, he means the paste. The new thermal paste you will be purchasing. Use a piece of plastic like a credit card to spread it out evenly and neatly. A THIN layer, not a thick cake.

hey, hes using cooler master hyper212 for the heatsink...

Tsuna as you are living in singapore you should get 39C-42C during idle as your temps and 50C-55C during loads using that fan.

i would ask you to unplug the fan from your mobo and see if theres any thermal compound on the cpu and also try cleaning the dust that's trapped on the fan..

i don't know if u would do this, coz it seems that opening your case already freaks you out

Do be afraid or worried, the only way to learn about all these things is jumping in and actually doing them. Obviously you need to get it into your head what exactly your trying to do beforehand, but once you know just do it.

If you run into trouble, then never be afraid to ask for help, even though there might be a bit of fun making, you'll soon be experienced enough to do anything you need to do.

There are so many guides and FAQ's on this forum, sometimes they're hard to find but someone will always point you in the right direction.

I feel extremely sorry for the OPs Q9550... it's probably an E0 too.

And by the way, the correct method of application varies with different thermal pastes.

well if you havent figured out by now that metal thing that looks like an x is the retention bracket for 775 that IS NEEDED to secure the cooler properly. i know because i have the same heatsink.. that could be a problem.

So was it actually confirmed to be the thermal paste? There is NOTHING else it can be?

Come on, who builds PCs (especially if they do it for a living) and 'forgets' thermal paste?
Either way, those temps are not going to damage the CPU... I believe the 45nm starts throttling at 100C, so don't worry about it breaking anything.
