Do I need a reseat?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am running my 2600k at 1.312 volts and max load after half hour, cores are as follows:

65, 71, 73, 68

It was my first time using AS5, and my Zalman 9700 is lapped, but the 2600k is not. Should I expect much cooler temps? Should I reseat and apply less paste? I did the line across the processor method as AS5 site suggests, but I don't know if my line was too thick. All responses appreciated.

AS5 isn't as good as the competition it also take forever to cure I would suggest buying gelid gc-extreme, shin etsu x23 or g751, mx-3, or tx-3 and then reseating for TIM application use line or uncooked rice grain

I wouldn't recommend TX-3, like MX-3 I hear it's really hard to apply since the stuff is so thick and gooey like peanut butter. But MX-4 and TX-4 seem to be easier to apply and have identical or even slightly better performance than the MX/TX-3 counterparts.
