I think the point when the protection kicks in is around 85C. Thus 80C will run, but is a sure way to shorten the lifespan of that CPU.

I would ask for a new processor. It was their fault that your pc is running hot! Now you have a shortened life cpu due to their negligence!

That's what I was thinking. I dont want to overclock it and have it die on me and then not be able to get my money back because I voided the warranty.

</div>I'm not disagreeing with a bad seated heatsink but isn't 1800 rpm a little slow?<br />
I think mine is running at 5400 rpm

I was never able to get it to run past 1800 either. And I belive that's the max because with the same fan settings I'm getting 2500RPM on my Arctic Freezer 7 Pro, which is the max fan speed for that cooler.
