I have an awful confession to make.

Clear through the Socket 7 days (start to finish), then Sockets A and 939, Socket 1366 and now Socket 1155, my CPU temps always seem higher than what I should expect. When it comes to thermal paste, I've tried them all and at various times and with various processors have used the "pea-sized dollop", the "straight line" method, spreading it out with a credit card, etc. I've tried different monitoring programs, since it's often mentioned that they can vary in accuracy. I tighten whatever cooler I'm using just like you'd do the lug nuts on a tire so that there is even tension. Etc, etc, etc.

I do notice that with this rig, the temps in the BIOS (which have got to be about as idle as CPU temps can get and still be running) are significantly lower than what RealTemp is showing me right after Windows has finished booting.

Anyone see anything I've missed or know of something else I can try?

From your confession above, if i may suggest "make a comparison" you could borrow a cpu from a friend of yours, if any of course. This's to make sure how good chip is yours. Temp, as we all know, is a direct access of an overvoltaged.

From your confession it sounds like either too much or too little paste.
Both are bad.
When you apply the paste next time, after you are done, remove it and take a picture and post it here, I'm sure you will get lots of advice.

If you have any paste coming out the sides of the CPU you have too much.
I put a very thin layer on the CPU and cooler, then a small dab or small line, depending on the cooler type. As per the link below.

Check this tutorial/pictorial on applying thermal paste, the pictures will help.

Holy cow - those are expensive!

(I'm still leaning that way myself, just don't know if I'm ready to cough up $50 for a pair for my H80.)

They are nice, though. Enjoy them, A Guy.

Yes the Noctua fans cost more and their worth it. You can crank up the rpm's and they are still quiet. My 2 Noctua's running push pull on my H50 are at 1430 rpm's off of the cpu fan connection on the motherboard.
