Bad contact with mobile cpu?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone....


When I first recieved my mobile cpu my temps were around the ~30*c (low to high). Load never really went past 41*c


Right now, I'm idling at 47*c! I'm not sure how to go about fixing this problem. Should I completely remove my HSF and reapply paste?


I know the screws dont hold my CPU fan in, i had to use tape because i have a vantec tornado now.


I'll post a pic when I can.








I removed the HSF, seemed as if I put too much AS5 on it. Cleaned it out, was extra carefull this time not to put too much. Also put a new fan on it (one that fit with the screws.

Lookin good so far, 39*c, but it's sitting on it's side right now. I think i'll keep it like that until the AS5 cures?


Update again:

If I put the tower back up, it raises temps back to 45*c

Prime95 @ 62*c max (with AC on, 59/60*c)
