    I think its your stock HSF thats the problem.
    Maybe getting a Volcano7+? Its only about 20bucks.
    Also the layer of AC3 should be thin, like a piece of paper thin. This isnt the case of "more the better," so check that

    BTW are you having any problems w. stability running at 60C?????
    That is getting really up there!
    I'm running [email protected] all the time and I dont ever see 45C! I got AC3 and V7+.
    Hope this helps

    Yes do be sure that the AS3 was very thin but you needn't worry as throttin' will kick in at the mid 70C's and shut itself down if heat continues to rise.
