matts6887 Let me be sure what you are posting.

Instead of you posting in C you want all your helpers to use some sort of chart to convert the temp from F to C.

Have a nice day.

As mentioned it really isn't a crazy hot temp. but I would re-apply TIM and re-visit a complete fan/filter and case cleaning. Remember when seating the cooler to use a light and even tightening and a rest period to let the TIM work it's oozing magic then a good snugging up but not over-tightening and then let it cycle on and off for a few days and cure up.

I use Artic Silver 5 and here are guidelines for application (depends on CPU)
Arctic Silver, Inc. - Intel® Application Methods
Too much thermal paste is bad so don't slap it on. The reason they typically use a thin line of paste is to initially cover all the CPU cores. The paste will spread further once the CPU heats up.
Also, make sure both contact surfaces (CPU lid and heat sink) are very clean using high purity isopropyl alcohol and lint free wipes. Coffee filters are good lint free wipes. Small fibres or bits of old paste will affect performance.

What gives bear? whats up with have a nice day? I mean i was simply stating that I dont understand c very well as much as others may. I dont see what the big deal is posting in f.

On another note; Sure enough it was the thermal paste. As soon as i pulled the fan off i could see it was all goopy like looking; as in like it was sorta dried out etc.; so; as i soon as i put the new cpu in that i received today; i put new thermal paste on; checked the temps and they were way way down. So problem solved there. As for the bsod's; well i still have yet to try and do another stress test and see if the cpu was in fact the issue. but i will get to it when i have a moment. Im marking this one as solved since it has been solved.

I'm "not foreign or anything" either but the whole world speaks of PC temps in Celsius. Even the Specy program you have puts it in C. You can post it anyway you like, but don't expect much help.

Well as I said the problem is solved so that's the end of that. As for not putting it in c; well if I can figure it out it will be posted.

Bottom line as soon as I put new thermal paste on.....the temps took a nose dive. Therefore
Problem solved.

some useless info -

-40C = -40F
