Greetings!
I made this thread, because I really want to know, how I should mount NOCTUA NH-U12P on a processor. Okay, here is how I did it:

1. Placed the new CPU to the motherboard.
2. Used silver paste (NT-H1) and spreaded it on E8400.
3. Mounted the NH-U12P on E8400.
4. After that last thing, the fan, I just stick it up.
5. Work done.

The point is, because I believe it's mounted badly, because I can't set Vcore up to 1.35V (cause of high temperatures, +70C full load).

So, I believe that you can tell me, how I should mount this heatsink/fan.
NOTE: IT WAS MY FIRST BUILT!

remove it, clean off thermal paste from both heatsink and cpu, reapply a small amount of thermal paste (bout the size of a grain of rice), spread it around until the cpu is covered (do not be tempted to add more), reset the pushpins (make sure to pull them all the way up before you start, makes em easier to insert), push them into the mobo in a diagonal pattern

Only a small drop of silver paste to processor and then just spread it around until the processor is covered and after that, just mount the heatsink? I did this way.
But I believe I used just too much the silver paste...

well, try and reseat, cause on a dual core, your temps should not be that high...
