Also idk if this affects my temp but back when I first got this mobo which is a week ago, I cleaned the heatsinks and replace thermal paste on the NB and then I noticed something black on top of the left side of the cpu next to the IO shield. Now I realize that must be where the VRM are right? and that black thing must basically be a very old thermal pad right? It's stickied into the mobo not under the heat sink so I didn't bother to remove it. Hmm I should have replaced it, does anyone know what size I should be buying?
