    My system is ideling around 35 c in the cpu, i'm using artic silver and at first the temp was 43-44 c ideling, but now it has slowely started to drop. I think it's running as cool as it can know.
    43-44 at full load. It takes a few weeks before the artic is giving the best effect. I use one 80 mm chassi fan and that is my only case cooling so far. Around 22-23 c in the room.

    You couldn't complain about that - sounds fine to me.

    Yep sound good, you got quite a bit of room there temp wise. But more case fans never hurt :D.

    I have never heard of Arctic Silver improving its thermal conductivity over time, especially such an extended time. This would imply a slow chemical change, probably heat induced. Is this a supposition or have you read about such a change?

    Typically, Arctic Silver will take a few hours to settle in and produce maximum results.. Most cases it's a max of a day.

    Other than that, there shouldn't be any chemical change AS would undergo, except for natural aging.. and stress due to heat.

    I usually find that it takes about 48 hours for AS3 to do its phase change. ;)

    Temp looks fine especially seeing its reading the onchip sensor...pretty damn accurate and well within spec.
    The older I get...the better I was

    I dont know about everyone else but the average heavy load temp from my friends that i get is around 50C, mine are significantly tlower though, but I run close to 300 cfm of air through my radiator on my liquid cooled case when ive got everything running full tilt (about 125 normally, otherwise im sitting next to what sounds like a vacuum cleaner). So yah youre temps sound fine.
