I Am getting rather high load temps with it, even though i did not overclock the system that much.

I Am using a AC Freezer Pro 7.
I've tried AS5 as well as MX-2 on it. Tried applying them in different ways to no avail.
From spreading the paste across it with a credit card to applying a vertical line across the CPU,small rice sized dropetc. No changes in temps even after 200 hours of burn in time.

I thought the HS wasn't making contact to the CPU because of the **** poor LGA775 push pins. So,i got this bolt thru kit http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/lgbowiscsp.html along with this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811156098 for some proper air flow. Nothing. Still no changes, whatsoever.

I've been searching and asking for help everywhere. Some are suggesting that i "lapp" (lapping) the CPU because the e4300 are known to have an uneven surface.


Help me out, please! I Am at a loss here. Thx!


My Specs:
WinXP Pro
GA-P35-DS3L
Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 Allendale
AC Freezer Pro 7
4Gigs of OCZ Platinum OCZ2N10662GK

LOL. That's too hot? Have you seen Kentsfield under load on stock cooler? Try 65C+ in a non-AC'ed room in the summer?

If you want to drop the temp to 45nm's level, get a 45nm cpu. If you want to just lower the temp, go H2O/TEC/PHASE/DICE/LN2. If you don't know any of them, don't worry. Be happy with your load temps.

It's not? I was under the impression that it was since i have seen people run it with higher clocks but much lower temps. Hmm,what should i consider a high temp then? Screws can't get any tighter, by the way.
