    I reckon my problem is likely to be the last hole when fitting my HSF. I might try to do that hole first next time and make sure its in right. Then do the others. I should really take the whole motherboard out so I can see under it and check the plastic bits are all the way though... but taking the whole thing out would be quite a hassle. If I get a new HSF I will definitely do that. Tomorrow though, I'll just try seating it again.

    I spread thin layer over CPU (blob in middle and spread with plastic card), and spread very thinn layer over heatsink and scrape most of it off - only want to fill voids.

    Try to make each and every day the best it can be.

    Thanks, that sounds good. I hope it goes better for me next time. I really thought I nailed it this time... I cleaned both the heatsink and CPU really thoroughly with Akasa Thermal Compound Remover, and lint free cloths. Then let it dry properly, and put the new compound on and spread it with a spreader card. Then got the thing fitted really tight. Only concern I had was the last clip didnt seem to make the right noise when I turned it into locking position, but it looked fully pushed in and held.

    Will give it one last try in a bit, and if not... I'll have to try buying a new heatsink and fan.

    I'm definitely screwed anyway, cause at full load (using IntelTAT) my "CoreTemp" temperatures said 62 degrees :/

    I'll do my final refit of it today sometime, and if its not better after that, I'll have to just buy a new heatsink&fan

    Argh, think I just need a new Arctic Cooler

    I took it all apart again... and cleaned the stuff and reapplied the compound.

    I fitted it again, and I couldnt get the last clip to go down AGAIN... I was really careful with it, and all corners are in the holes properly, and I pushed them all down hard and they all clipped in. I turned the screws to secure them all.

    Last time, one of them seemed to not be perfect. It had about half a millemetre give when I pressed it. This time they are all in as far as they go and its all secured in place. Seems super solid. But my temps are the exact same.


    INTEL TAT:
    Idle: 46 degrees.
    Both cores loaded: 60 degrees.

    If I left it on full load for more than a couple of minutes, I suspect that would end up being about 61 or 62.

    I think if the thermal compound can shave off a few degrees after it settles, that will make it better. But I still just hate being at around 60 when both cores are pushed. It may come down to like 55-58 in a week or so, but thats still too high I think, considering its an after market cooler.

    So I think I'll call Scan and see if I can get a replacement Arctic Cooling 7 Pro. I dont know if they will replace it for free or not But Im gunna try. If they wont do it for free, I might buy a different one, like a big burtha or whatever its called.

    I really want temps in the 30's when idle and 40s when fully loaded.
