This tells me I have contact so I will sometime in the near future pull the board and change out the TI material. Part of my problem is I am using an Corsair H50 and don't have a fan blowing in the area of the heat sink which is right above the video card.
I use a h50 as well and I put a 120mm fan in my drive bay and it works pretty good, just play with fan conf. and those temps will drop

Idle, I updated my post. I have not seen temps go over 55C so far at load.

I just flash the BIOS with 707 the system has no OS and at post it tell me CPU Fan error!

I have the H50 and I plug the pump in one of the Fan channels and the fans directly to the PSU, did I do something wrong?

i am getting my pop to machine down the two aluminium retention screws to the exact height of the copper/brass ones. (i dont have any tools).

Should i remove the yellow gunk and install some good stuff (for cpus)? i dont have anything special, ie no alcohol to remove it. But the yellow stuff hasnt even touch the NB so i am assuming it would be easier to remove from the heatsink then the chip.

or should i just get the newly appropriately sized retention screws and screw it down and deal with the 50degree idle temps others are having?
