I reinstalled my proc (Athlon 64X2 "Kuma", underclock to 2.4GHz), and put some arctic silver 5 on it. I put on two very thin lines, and I then smeared it around with my fingertips. It left a very thin and smooth layer on the processor surface, and I then reinstalled the cooler. I ziptied an aftermarket fan to it, on top of the stock one. I booted up, ran Hmonitor and Prime95, and within 7 or 8 minutes, jumped from 40C idle to 63C! Is normal/safe?
