    You can switch fans to blue LED fans on many CPU coolers out there, just pick a good one and put blue LED fans on it.

    When you said you added more paste, that doesn't sound right? Did you actually add some? When you remove a cooler, you need to clean off the CPU and heatsink to remove all the old paste, and then put new paste, each time you remove it.

    Less is more, a thin line or small blob around the size of a small pea is plenty.

    Yes, I removed the old paste. I booted the CPU back to 3.0ghz, and so far it's holding in the mid forties for temp. I get the funny feeling my fan wasn't all the way down ><;

    Of course, I will hold off OCing the CPU until I get a better fan. Now I have a new problem all together...my external HD is showing 280g/320g used, but I cannot see any files...

    What kind of drives, USB or eSATA?
    That's with optimized defaults too?
    To save your currect settings press F11 at main BIOS screen, and save a BIOS profile, later you can restore it with F12.
    Sometimes a click higher ICH/IO or ICH Core needed when OCing.

    It's a USB. And yes, I loaded optimized defaults before I did my OCing.

    Oh. It happened after I disconnected it to make sure the paste and fan were down. Was working after OC.

    If you just load optimized defaults now, no OC, does the pronlem persists?
    If it's just when you use OC settings try one click up ICH Core/ICH/IO not sure which.

    EDIT: one click above the default value shown at the left.

    The problem persists with Optimized defaults as well.
