My CPU has been running really hot, so since I can't afford a new CPU, like I want, I want to just buy a new HSF, and hopefully drop the temp. Currently, according to SpeedFan, my CPU is running at 65-75C, which I know is insanely high. My first question is, how do I clean off the CPU, from the previous HSF, and second, I'm looking at buying http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835106073 as well as some artic silver. Do you think it'll drop my temp a lot or could it just be something wrong with my CPU? Or any other HSF suggestions that could be better? I'm kind of worried about going through the process of cleaning off the CPU, applying the artic silver, and the new HSF. I'm afraid I may mess something up. I've built many computers, but I've never applied any compound, just stock CPU/HSF. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
