Why so hot?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have Azureus and emule running and another seperate download. speedfan is reading 62C. Is this odd? I recently installed a masscool heatsink and applied AS5. I think it gets to about 47C lowest I've seen.

how much AS5 did you put on? Only a very thin strip is necessary otherwise it basically turns into insulation for your processor. Also, it takes 200 hours for the AS5 to set it... how long ago did you apply it?

I applied it yesterday. Hmm I'm thinking I may have applied too much then, I really caked her on thinking it was good. to both the cpu and heatsink. Should I clean it all off and start fresh maybe?

Yes, you want a very small strip, then it will start to become effective.. I would say start over, oh, and only put it on 1 thing, either the CPU or the Heatsink, i like to smear it on my heatsink, and then twist the AS5 on the CPU..

Alright sweet, I'll give it a try and see if it helps.. Is it important to make sure the entire surface of the cpu gets covered?
