At 1:15 of this clip it looks like there is film covering the compound. Or maybe not.

Solved!! I think...

uh ohh... lol i can't remember if i removed it or not. the compound spread and stuck to the cpu as if ther was no film so i guess i did and just didn't realize it.

ne ways turns out skunksmash was right. the mount wasn't secure. those plastic secure pins suck! i broke one just now trying to get it in there. i wiggled the mount and its pretty secure but damn one of the pins broke off into... getting teh mount of later is going to be a BIT*H!

i'm now idling at around 45-47C. i'm happy with this, but crysis still crashes sometimes. at the boss fight after i unload a few rocket launchers on him while he's up in the air. i think i skimmed a thread about taht issue. Thats where i'm off too next!

Thanks you so much everyone. if u guys still think 45 is a little i'm open to suggestions.

45c idle is certainly acceptable, but this temp isn't as important as the load temps....

what stress tester have you got..??, also what monitoring apps are you using..??

i have no stress testers. i downloaded 3d vantage but then i saw that its a trail and not free so i said screw that. i'm monitorying system temps with speedfan. it runs in the background while i play and i haven't experienced any problems with so that i know of.

while playing crysis or actually watching youtube and downloading files temps goes up to 50C easily and speedfan displays flames next to it

OCCT is good, but i prefer ''Orthos'' its much more ''user friendly''

just run one of these apps with all fans @ 100% (the AC7 PRO is a PWM fan & can be controlled using speedfan) & keep an eye on speedfan while the tests running, if you get a system crash while using these, or the temp starts getting dangerously high we'll have to take a look at your case management.

If you broke one of the 4 heatsink mounting pins, you better replace it. They can be had from online sources. A PC normally idles in the 30s.
