I'm having a similar problem, there is little dust in the heat sink, my brother says the way that me and my friend applied the thermal paste is incorrect, we put a thin layer of thermal paste on, but covered the whole copper square, did we use too much?

the fans cpu goes up to 81C when playing planetside 2, it is currently at 57C

Can I please have some help?

Your friend is right, you messed up. Thermal paste hasn't meant to be been applied like that since the 90's.

What you're suppose to do, with modern thermal paste, is put a small pea sized glob in the middle and then mount the heat sink on top of it- letting the pressure spread out the paste evenly. When you apply a entire layer at once it creates air bubbles when the heat sink is mounted.

 

Although it may not be you applying the thermal paste incorrectly. What CPU are you using and what heat sink are you using? 


99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case. 

I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much. 

I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.

I had speed fan 4.49 as my fan indicator, It says that my pc is hotter, I just downloaded Soeccy to find out what pc I had, and it indicates that the temperature is lower at 38-42C when not gaming

AMD FX-8150 39 °C
Zambezi 32nm Technology

Motherboard
ASRock 970DE3/U3S3 (CPUSocket) 38 °C

What program is more acurate to see what temperature pc is at?

My fault for not asking first.

Speed fan can definitely be inaccurate. It has some incompatibility problems. 

Me and everyone else I know uses CoreTemp for CPU temperature monitoring. 

 

Never said what heat sink you were using. 

 

Your motherboards support page says it doesn't support your CPU. It says it only supports the eight "core" zambezi CPUs up to 3.2Ghz. The FX-8150 is a eight "core" zambezi CPU running at 3.6Ghz. So... if you run into some instability problems in the future, or the motherboard fails entirely, that's why.
