thanks for the replys,
when I am gaming (FC3, BF3, Skyrim with texture mods) I only reach 50 - 55.
my ambient tempretures fluctuate a lot as i live in sunny down under so ambient range from 25 - 35 definitely do know there is a lot more heat coming from the CPU on those hotter days.
Anyway, thank you for all the help guys, I think I am happy with the temps.
I put about a 5c piece worth of thermal compound, I am not sure if that is to much?
Anyway, I heard that the noctua thermal compound takes a few weeks to set I read on a few forums.
I don't know weather to believe that or not.
was the protective plastic sheild removed prior to installation ?
