Thanks, wouldn't have guessed. Suppose I should have said "It would be nice to have my idle temps down around the reviewers temps"
Anyway, back to my idle temps...
Already Cleaned my cpu/cooler and used the uncooked grain of rice method.
Unclocked my CPU is running 2 degrees cooler idle and loaded. Better then nothing I suppose.
Gonna go see what the temps are like clocked to 3.8.
Edit: At 3.8 CPU idles 3 degrees cooler now. At load temps its also 3 degrees cooler.
Edit2: There was enough thermal paste to easily do 2 applications.Edited by notwil - 3/13/11 at 11:38am
