Grain of rice sized amount of AS5 generally gives the best results.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

Holy crap, 27C. I've never seen better temps with that cooler.

hers an update. All I added was a 92MM fan from my ol' Scythe Katana CU (pushes 52cfm) I added it to move some "dead air" in my case. Temps dropped EVEN MORE! God I love this thing!<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/a/a8/a8d2e622_vbattach33800.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616609/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

Ha! I love my 9500 too! The thing allows for ridicoulous OCs. I also threw a VF900 on my X1800XT and its running at 738/1574. If I could cool the voltage regulators more, I think I could get a higher mem OC from it..

My idle temps were 21c when using easy tune 5, I thought they were a little low so I installed speed fan and they read 29c. Everest and pc Wizard and hmonitor all read 40c at idle. I don't know why they are all reading different temps, but i don't think you should trust that easy tune 5.

WOW! I sure wish my 9500 cooled that well. I'm getting 44*C at idle with mine, tho it is OC'd to 2.676. Maxed out at 100% on both cores it jumps to 54*C in just a few minutes. Can't clock any higher without better temp control. Hope to get to 2.7 eventually.

you might try reapplying AS5 or something like that because I think i put too much on which is why I'm only going 2.66Ghz at around 48C and I know I can get it a little farther.

Mine doesn't keep my 4400 that cool. I may have to make sure that it is flat. I heard they had some trouble with them in the beginning (when I got mine). My temps stay around 54-55 with 2x FAH running 24x7.

You might try lapping as I have heard that helps but never done it myself. I'm going water cooling myself.. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />
