alright...this is stupid...I found a fault in my power supply yesterday...replaced the psu...while I was at it, I took off the heat sink and cleaned both the sink at the chip with some alcohol, and then reapplyed arctic silver 5 just the way the company site says to...my load temps were around 46C before redoing it...now they are up to like 55C....what am I doing wrong?<br><br>
It is hard to set the heatsink directly on the chip, as I have to do it inverted as the sink that I use attaches from the rear of the mobo...

I could be setting wierd. Redo it and see what happens. Sometimes it doesn't get on there right and you just have to do it over. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

I know it's not much help just saying "do it over" but that's about all you can do. Some of the new HSFs are heavy and awkward so it's hard to get them locked in correctly.

Could it be your AS5 was cured before? I know that would be a huge drop for curing, but just a thought.

Nah man...the difference between normal AS5 and cured AS5 isn't that much. Some people say there is a huge difference, but usually it isn't in a temp controlled room and can be because of a weather change.

<div style="font-style:italic;">Remember that AS5 takes up to a week if not 2 weeks to fully cure and start working to its full potential.</div>

It's "only" 100 hours <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)"> That means under a week for me.

Also use a size of a grain of salt. And make sure you tighten the clamps down on your cooler reallly good!

"Grain of salt"? We talking sea salt? Table salt? Fine grind? Kosher? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> I'm just poking at you a bit...salt ranges a lot, so it would be better to reference something a little more consistent in it's varieties.<br><br>
Anyways a "bb" size or a grain of rice (standard white long-grain) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

yea...listen to what the problem was....there are two power leads going into the monsoon..one for the fan. and one for the peltier cooler...well, the one going to the pelteir was out of the molex sleeve, dangling by itself....plugged it back in some random way, now temps are icy cold again.
