    Thermal paste is Arctic Silver 5.
    Applied thermal paste and reseated about a week ago. Possibly I did something wrong then and need to re-do it.

    How did you apply it? AS5 is good stuff despite what others think. I've tested using AS5 and others and if applied proper it works very well.

    i put a small amount in the center and pressed the HSF down and screwed it in. Do you suggest I manually spread the thermal paste using a card or something?

    Visualize the 4 cores on your cpu and add 4 small dabs (smaller then a BB)
    set your Heatsink on with out clamping it down, and give it a slight twist left n right.. after that clamp it down and run Prime or what ever and heat that sucker up... I do 4 10min runs of prime to heat it up and after that let your temps drop till stable... after that run Prime again and so on so forth.. It just helps with the curing. But the thing is AS5 needs time to do its thing, give it a few weeks and you'll notice the temps will be better. ;)

    EDIT* clean the cpu and HSF off with isoprople alcohol.. then put a dab of paste to both and get a plastic bag to put tour finger in and smear it all around.. that being done get a lint free cloth and clean off the paste then apply as I stated above. By doing that your filling in all the tiny microscopic scratches on both surfaces.

    I ordered a water cooling kit today (XSPC Rasa 240). I'm just gonna roll with the hot processor until I get my water cooling kit at which point I'll be more careful of applying the thermal paste. I also sold my processor (RB-C2, 140W) and bought an Rb-C3, 125W. Would have loved to get the 1090T but many cases of people who use the 1090T on my motherboard have ended up burning the motherboard.

    I think I seen what you ordered and you wont be disappointed at all. The C3 is a great clocker for sure, I had one :D
    And I think staying away from the x6 is a smart move, I needed to upgrade to the crosshair IV from the CH3 as the x6 was all buggy and such.

    Umm by 2c off as the bios reports. Trust me E.... It's cold in here as the window is wide open, with a fan drawing the outside air into my room, and the side is off the case with the fans on 100%...

    I'm wearing a TUQUE and have a jumper on with the hoodie up, and a small ceramic heater at my feet to keep warm lol I can probably take a pix of the bios temp if you like but by looking at the camera atm the screen is all weird from the cold lol

    It's impossible for your CPU to be at an ambient temperature while powered on. It's more around 12-20c off.

    May be off also or reading the ambient air AROUND the cpu.

    The bios reads off of the same sensor. Adding 20c would be a bit too generous probablly, but I would imagine your CPU is idling right around 20c.

    CPU temp in bios = CPU Socket sensor
    CPU Core in bios - CPU Core sensor.
