I installed the Zalman 9700 LED a few days ago, and they were somewhat high, low 40s idle. I was wondering why it was that high. When I was installing it for the first time, about 5-7 fins got bent because of the PSU wires were up against it, and another couple of fins got bent also because of the wires. I bent back the fins so they don't touch each other. I used to S clip to mount it, but I had to bend it a bit so I could actually screw it on. http://zalman.co.kr/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?idx=164 I saw that installation video of it, and you can see they put thermal paste all over the CPU and most of the heatsink. I thought that was too much, so I only added thermal paste over the center of the CPU and not the heatsink. Was I supposed to add as much as shown in the installation video, should I try to re-mount the heatsink to see if I can make it fit tighter? Any other ideas I can maybe try to lower the CPU temperature?
