Artic Silver 5 is quite good and will lower temps by about 5C or so. Are you sure the heatsink is placed correctly.

quick fixes:

1) buy arctic silver 5
2) put about a dot the size of a bb on the center of the chip
3) don't spread it around, let the heatsink pressure do it for you
4) place the heatsink on without moving it around too much

5) BUY A NEW HEATSINK!!!!!

jk, do it, tell us if it helped...those pressy's are hot!!!

I have exactly same configuration as you do, 3.2 p4 and 6600gt. Intel stock HS sucks and that temperature is pretty good for it. Put some 80mm fan around the case to help vent hot air works. Getting a air duct to feed cold air directly from out side of case works best. Try some new thermal compound or try to apply it again the right way. I have 7700AuCu and it idle at 36 and burn at 53

You dont need to reply the same thing to 3 people!!

To clear your CMOS get your motherboard manual and it will show you the locaion of the CLEAR_CMOS jumper (or it might be called something similar, RESET CMOS or something, in my gigabyte it's clear_cmos)

Put a jumper on it. Turn your PC on, it wont power up but it will reset the BIOS settings.

Remove the jumper. Turn your PC on. It will say CMOS Reset press F1 to continue, or something similar. Press F1 (obviously)

Then check your temps.

I found after messing around with all my settings, my fan was running at about 1300 RPM insted of 2500 RPM which is normal for it. After clearing CMOS it was working okay again.

Good luck!
