CPU Cooling Fan

Now reassamble and see if it works any better, if it doesnt you need to go and get some new thermal compound arctic silver 5 is the best most good PC shops should have it or you can order online. Remove the heatsink from the cpu carefully then use cotton buds and alcohol to clean the old compound off then following the directions that should come with the compund or these http://www.arcticsil...nstructions.htm apply the new compound and reinstall the HSF see if that helps any.
If that still doesnt work you will need to replace the HSF with something a bit more powerful, i would probably reccomend something like an arctic freezer cheap and effective but there are a few you can look at you might want something special.

I will take a look around later on and i'll see what I can find.
Is your computer noisy?? due to all the fans ??

About installing a new HSF - what type of alcohol do you use to take the old thermal grease off?

A good one that I would go for (I still have stock as well by the way ) is the Zalman CNPS7000B-Cu LED
Do a google for the CNPS7000B-Cu LED because I cant find the direct URL for that fan on the zalman website.
Go to www.zalman.co.kr and look for the CNPS7000B-Cu LED

Most people will have a bottle of alcohol under the sink or in the garage for cleaning.
