we're not that bad once you get to know us.....

but you are about to "let the smoke out" as max temp before heat throttling on the Prescott core is about 65C--so even if it doesn't go poof you are getting less processing power as the CPU throttles down to avoid overheating.... no need to run taxing benchmarks at this time--go easy till you can cure your prob....

Apply to much AS5 and it accual insulate the processor. I'm not going to apply to much again just to prove that it happened, but you may search around the thread and see it, because I did post it. (about Dec time).

My cpu was running a little hot (65C idle, 80 load), I went to Best Buy and got some Dynex Silver Thermal Compound. I figured this would help because I previously was using cheap stuff from compusa. I put in the new stuff and turned on the computer. Now it is IDLING at 94C!!!!! Is it Dynex or something else? I tried reinstalling the heatsink and compound thinking I did something wrong, but there was no improvement.

This is one of the most common mistakes with thermal paste, and it is infact a very big problem. Thermal paste is only needed to fill the microscipic valleys between the heatsink and cpu, so if you use more than a barely visable layer, it will insulate the cpu and cause very high temps. You're suppsed to use the ammount of half a BB (.177) in the very center and let the heatsink squish it out to avoid air pockets which are also very bad.

PLEASE turn that sucker off and wait untill you can get the temps fixed properly. Your risking frying cpu and mobo if you keep running this hot. think of the money you would have to spend to replace everything. OR you could turn it off for just a week( i dont know why its gonna take that long to get some as5) and eliminate the risk of completly screwing yourself and the system over... if your fry cpu you wont be playing f.e.a.r at all

OK do whatever you want, but over 80C is really really freakin hot dude. At 60C something is already hot to the touch, so over 80C wow, you like living dangerously man. I believe your approaching thermal breakdown temperatures on that thing man, they're tough but not indestructable. I'm sure your cpu is already throttling so you're performance is down. Prolonged extreme heat is not good, so be prepared to possibly buy a new cpu if you don't fix it soon. And just cause it's working now, doesn't mean it will be in 6 months if you keep that up, good luck.

Thermal paste doesn't make that much of a difference IMHO. I installed a tornado 12 on my athlon 2800 barton running 1.8 vcore and load was 44 with no paste/pad. Meh, Maybe I was lucky? But I do run it on all my machines just for the security, overclocking potential and unnoobiness

Yo I have a huge all copper zalman heatsink on it plus a very good ariflow through the case.

Some d00ds said it was probably my heatsink that was unproperly seated or that I put too much as5...

I want your opinion guys.

Plus to reseat the heatsink, would it be better to remove the mobo?

And yo I've been running this comp at those temps for over 6 months... is it just my sensors that are ****ed up?

Plz I need help b4 my cpu fries!!!!

You have already posted this.

http://www.overclock.net/intel-cpus/...-83c-load.html

A bit fishy to me personally but I stayed out of your previous thread. I find this hard to believe though. Your computer would either be seriously throttling or shutting down. After six months of 90C (previous thread was was 83C) is a bit hard to swallow.
