Don't do what I said, thanks another mistake (it's fixed now). Jeez, do that and you'll have the opposite effect with to little thermal compound.

Hello guys I have gotten my new CPU heat sink today and I've just installed it and idle it's around 35-40C and under load it does not go over 46C. Overall I'm satisfied with the results since before under load it was going over 60C!! Well I do not have to worry about that any more. Here are a few picture of the new heat sink with a 120mm fan attached to it. Yes I do know that it should have been pointing towards the fan thats take the air out but when I was settings it up I had to take out the motherboard and doing so messed me up and I put it in wrong and it faced the wrong way and I did not feel like spending an extra 30minutes moving it, Maybe when I get a new case. And thanks goes out to all the people who have helped me with this case, still have to wait for my vga heatsink and when I have it in I will post pictures!
