... I seriously have some issue here. my temps before i got my Xigmatek was 50 - 60 at idle for my cpu (depending on how warm it is) and motherboard was 28 - 35. Once replaced with the Xigmatek HSF temps dropped for my cpu down to 30 at idle, and 43 under full load (over 2 hour) motherboard was the same as before. Things got a little a dusty about a month ... maybe a little longer, and temps was very high so i decided to take everything out n dust it all down using my usual method, a soft paint brush. Cleaned and re-applied fresh paste to the cpu, put all back together, everything booted up fine as expected, temps though are 38 for my cpu now (at idle) and 39 for my motherboard :S I really don't understand it, I do know everything is done correctly. Hardware issue maybe?
