    How exactly would I be able to tell if that was what was out?? How would I fix it if it was? Is it just registering the temp wrong, or is actually getting hot?

    with the temp diff u r reporting u should be able to feel the difference (just touch the heatsink - be careful 70'c is very hot)

    my cpu temp underload is 45'c

    I've invested in some new case fans, case mods to get the temp down to that

    You might also think about getting an actual thermal probe to see how high the temperatures actually are. You can pick up a low-end probe (like the Compu-Nurse) for very little.

    I can tell the difference, but I don't think it is 70 degrees C. My other 1.4..sits at 32'c. I will lap this heat sink and put some artic silver and see what that does..Next would be compu-nurse or digi-doc..then I will be looking at case fans...2x80...either 2x120 or 2x92..don't know yet.
