Is there a possibility the motherboard is slightly warped so correct pressure is'nt being applied.
Do you have another heatsink you can try.
Umm, yes... I wasn't going to mention you though
The CPU always ran warm. We were thinking it was the case, so I installed another exhaust fan. Afterwards, I also removed the side panel and put mesh instead so practically the case is now like without a side. It made very little difference.
Unfortunately I don't have another cooler to replace it with.
This time I put AS 5 instead of some old generic TIM. I was really hoping that idle temperatures would fall to the low 40's at least. My own rig with the processor overclocked @ 4Ghz idles at 42 degrees. But this one refuses to go below 53!
