    Sounds Like the heatsink wasnt quite mounted exact. Its not hard to do there are a lot of threads about it. Glad to see you are more happy. You could always go to Liquid if you really wanna get cooler. Aceton?? Come on, I drink that stuff for breakfast. I clean my stuff with Brake cleaner. Works a treat.

    Perhaps a newb question but I am assuming Aceton = Acetone the chemical compound? Or is it some specific product?

    If you don't like Acetone and getting a little buzzed then you should try ArctiClean. I love this stuff it smells great and no buzz..

    My i7 runs ~40C idle and ~80C load with Stock cooling. Intel must be okay with the 80-ish range, unless I just sucked at installing my cooler. This is with ambient temp relatively low. In the summer I'm guessing it will hit 85-88C at load easily. I don't like the 80s either though, that's why I ordered a better cooler.
