And what is the best thermal paste to use???
the recommended temperature range for your CPU is 5deg to 72.4deg C so it's within tolerance but still a bit high, CPU cooling is a function of the heatsink and fan and your case temperature and airflow, If this was me I would want to be sure I was using an efficient but quiet heatsink and fan then I would use a decent paste like Arctic Silver to make sure it had the best chance of good contact, Isopropyl alcohol is good with cotton buds for cleaning the cpu but make sure your "grounded" to avoid any static
what is the make of your CPU heatsink/fan ?
