    What paste are you using, compared to them? Are you maybe using too much?

    Do you have worse case airflow than they do? Are your ambient temps much higher than theirs?

    I do think that is warm for stock speeds for sure, especially with a good cooler. Are you sure you are not using too much paste, and that you have the cooler fully and tightly installed?

    where using the same paste the one comes with the cooler and my room abient is 29-31c and on my friends 32-33c, ive reseated it using small ammount and its tight in cpu also.. some of my friends tell me that it is a motherboard problem. and sometimes when i start my cpu my 2 fans connecting in lower 3&4 pin power connectors in motherboard are blinking and then afterwards it will resume working...

    Do you have your CPU Fans on the correct settings in the BIOS, and connected to the CPU Fan header (Not other headers)?

    The lower header on the board, SYS_FAN2 will only run at half speed, so don't use that for your CPU.

    Do you use two fans in Push/Pull? Do your friends you are comparing temps with use 2?

    What BIOS setting are you using, PWM or voltage? And have you tried it the other way?

    In the BIOS PC Health section, you will find CPU Fan control.

    Set that to PWM then test temps, then go back and set that to Voltage and test again. Then decide which is better.

    Your friends might also be using different fans and that would matter too.

    So any luck testing both settings yet? They are probably both about the same though, I just thought maybe one way or the other might not be working with your fans right is all.

    Let me know what you find out.
