Sure beats canned air and no worries about static.
I never seen one of those before any ideas where i might get one in Australia.

and make sure the block is seated properly on the cpu if you havent already.
also i heard thermal paste can make quite the difference in cooling performance, but im not sure on that one, someone else will jump in from here probably.
My last system that i had in this case the mother board and processor was in there for three years running at full load the hole time, when it was time to take it out the processor out it was stuck to the WB to get the processor off i had get a screw driver to leaver it off, the paste was dry not moist I've never seen paste that dry before.
so what I'm saying is this is a problem I've had for a long time 4 years in about, I'm not sure but i don't think anything to do how well the CPU has being seated to the WB, anyway I'll find out in the next few weeks.........I guess i should have come here and asked for advice before.

I would agree with this seating the the CPU properly is more important than what thermal greases you use.
Anyway thank you for your advice.
