Big Typhoon temps to high?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
curently I have a BT on a 3400+ sckt 754 @ 1.6v core. The temps have sored in prime to 55c load. I thought this was supposed to be the better of most hs. I have tried to reseat it, for some reason it seems that the bracket came lose? how that happen I have no clue, but I took it off and looked at the AS5 one the cpu and HS and its a thin layer like usual. I then put the HS back on makeing sure it was on snug and still getting bad readings on temps. Is there any thing more I can do ?

Well, if it is loose that sounds like the problem. Also, I always re-apply AS5 when ever it is exposed to air after the initial application. I am not sure, but I think that is standard procedure.

Again, make sure it is on there pretty snug.
