Well, there some residue left on it, but basicly no thermal paste. Ive stressed it with 20 minutes on overide stability and played 2 hours bc2.

TBH, its the same as it was with the termal on. Maybe that was my problem? But the paste that was on it was so godamn thick, like 3 mm thick.

I hope this will help drive home the advantage of an after market heatsink and fan. I have a 955, not a 940, but this should still help. I am overclocked to 4.1GHz, 1.404v and I have my NB at 2800MHz and 1.2v. The screen shot below shows my system under load after 15 hours of a blend test. I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ with an additional pull fan of the same type as the push fan. I picked it all up for $40. Anyway, my temps are low. My ambient temps in my case are about the same as yours. I think that you could easily hit 3.8GHz with 1.4v on the core and be at these same temps.



The stock Heatsink is terrible on the 940.

EDIT: Your ambient temp is a bit higher than mine, but you should still be well below 62C on the CPU with the Hyper 212 cooler. You should try to stay below 55C.

That is very impressive, my ambient temp is actually low when the CPU inst heating the hole case up.
Due to its closeness to the ram, it heats then up like no tmr.
Is this the cooler,its very cheap (im in the UK).

Will I have to have access to the back of the mobo for this cooler? Its something that I would want to avoid as it takes so long.?

4ghz is easily reachable on a 965, especially the c3 stepping such as yours. a H50 would be more than enough for cooling.

Proper TIM and heatsink application is crucial to good cooling and keeping your CPU healthy. My recommendation stands, to not run your computer until you clean off your cpu and heatsink and apply thermal paste and heatsink properly. You will see much better temps and better stability.

Yes, that is the cooler. I ran stock and could only reach 3.5GHz. At that temp, I was at 65C. The Cooler Master 212+ makes a huge difference, and you don't really need an additional fan. It only dropped my temps another 1 - 2C.

Up to 70 is fine.

Up to 70 is NOT fine! Do not believe this suggestion, as it will shorten the life of your CPU.

Some reading material regarding thermal properties of the Phenom family processors:

Please refer to page number 58 in your linked document. The max temperature is stated as being 70.
