    OK, I installed Speedfan, and It says my temp1 is 65C. I have the thermal paste on, just some stuff from a local computer shop. Will AS5 or w/e you guys recommend bring it down alot?

    how much did you put on it I found that using a credit card to scrape it on to pull some excess off usually works best. I have used AS5 and it worked fine as long as I didnt put 1000lbs of it on my first build I made that mistake!

    I used a credit card to have a smooth 1/16" or thinner base.

    I've never done it but I thought it was supposed to be almost razor thin, like you can almost see through the layer. Then it takes a week or so to properly "Melt" flat and even to properly bond to the CPU.
