I just have to remember to do all of this on my own machine when I get it put back together!

For the record, core temp never once got to 65. It stayed around 62-64.

This is good news after all the stress of the last week I hope it stays running good. I am sure that you will get your own PC up and running quickly.

All right, I guess I'll have to order some new paste from Newegg and go buy a bottle of alcohol, too. Possibly some plastic wrap as well to spread it.

I think the pre-applied thermal paste may have been over-applied, too, it looked like a lot when I pulled my own heatsink off of my CPU. It was oozed out around all of the edges, I don't know if it was supposed to do that. So, possibly there may be too much.

I also downloaded some AS5 instructions and had a look over them and saved it for later when I apply the new stuff.

MelancholyRose,ou can also use coffee filters for cleaning it. They work well also. Wax paper works for plastic wrap or most any type of plastic, like a plastic freezer bag.

They are lint free and that is VERY important. And as you said, quite common. I use them for removing paste and cleaning the CPU and HS.

Rubbing alcohol will work to clean the CPUs/heatsinks, right?

Yes. Just get the highest purity you can., and a lot of elbow grease.

Also, don't put the alcohol on the CPU or HSF, Put it on the cloth, and not enough to where it will run. Just a little at a time. It will work with a lot of rubbing. Get it as clean as possible.
