I am using a Cooler Master Hyper n520 cooler...I idle at around 29C-33C and ran prime95 small FFT CPU test and was up to 69C at load...is that too high for load? I ran the test for like 1-2 hours. The instructions had me install this cooler backwards because the air is being blown back into the case rather than facing towards the rear exhaust fan (I didnt know this until I turned the PC on for the first time!)...would that make much of a difference? And I applied Arctic Silver using the pea size squirt in the middle of the CPU method, should I reapply and try the 'thin line' method?
