I got a new cooler for my cpu the athlon x4 860k, I got the cooler master 612 v2. My idle temps are lower, but still high (40-50c) and it doesn't get better from there, under light load and under voltaged to 1.4250 my temps still exceed 80c. I am good with computers so I have resat the cooler with artic silver 5 and with the cooler master thermal paste that came with the cooler, with the same result though idle temps are lower with the cooler master stuff. Like I said I am good with computers so please so ask me if I put the thermal paste on correctly. I already emailed amd about my concern but I want to run it past you guys, do you think the thermal paste under the heat spreader could not be correctly applied? I think everyone can agree my temps are high but I know for a fact no one will agree on what could be causing the issue, so I want to try and prevent any "dumb questions" from being asked about how I applied the thermal paste and if I reused any ( I didn't, I am down 6 grams of artic silver) so I just want to say my cooler is mounted correctly and my thermal paste covers the whole cpu once I put my cooler on. So as I said before does anyone think its likely the issue is the thermal paste between the die and heatspeader? Thanks!
