    Get a Volcano 7+, they are better
    The "gel" is also known as a "tim" "thermal interface material" or something like that.
    You put it between your HSF and CPU to help conduct the heat across.
    Artic 3 is the most proven.
    You only need a thin layer though, search out some guides before you do it.

    Artic Silver is a replacement for the pads that commonly come stuck to the bottom of heatsinks. It is generally considered to be superior. I use it with fast processors. Its purpose is to provide a thermally conductive bridge between any surface irregularities on the heatsink and cpu. Using it insures the largest surface contact between the components = greater heat transfer. To use it, start by using a piece of plastic (won't scratch) to scrape off the original pad. Clean the bottom of the heatsink thourghly with alcohol and a soft cloth. Apply a small dab of Arctic Silver to the surface of the chip in the middle of the cpu body. Smooth it with your finger or a piece of plastic. You want a uniform, thin film. Attach the heatsink carefully, not sliding it around a lot. BTW - my voltages run higher than yours, but who knows how accurate our monitors are.

    From what Ive read the fan on the 7+ is no good unless you mod it. I wish they'd of made the 7+ with the SmartFan2. :(

    No that's the Volcano 7, the Volcano 7+ is entirely different kettle of fish all together. ;)
