    I have a AMD Athlon 6400 and I was having heat issues with it using stock heatsink. IT would idle at about 60 degree celsius and reach 70 when playing games. And during this weekend when it was really hot, My processor would actually overheat and shut down my pc.

    So I bought a Zalman Cooler 9700, which by the was is extremly easy to install on a AM2 socket.

    After installing it, my pc temperature jumping between 50 to 60 degree everytime the reading is refreshed. Its not constanst like it was with the stock heatsink.

    is this normal for a zalman cooler? Or did i mess up something? I never seen pc temperature do this before.

    Ok, I figured out the problem. I just uninstalled it, cleaned off the thermal i used that came with zalman cooler the one i used on my other heatsink.
