    Did you really need a new thread for this?

    Anyway Arctic Silver is probbably the best thermal paste to use. Breaking it in is just how it settles after the first few days of applying it. Your temps should go down a few degrees after a few days.

    What other cooling do you have in your case? Is the fan actually working on the heatsink? Which heatsink are you using? Have you mounted it correctly?

    What are your temps in the bios? And when you say it is overheating is it actually throttling back?

    ok heatsink is the intel 1 that came with the heatsink
    im pretty sure its mounted correctly ive check a couple of times
    i have a abit mobo with uguru and i get reading of about 140 all the way up to 160 idle

    and i mean 160 idle wtf is up with that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    coolling, ok i have 1 120mm fan 1 abit NB fan, heatsink fan, 2 fans on the PSU, and right now i have to side of the case off and a 10inch fan set on high coolling it, but so far that doesnt seem to be doing anything

    There is no need to keep bumping the thread.

    Plug the heatsink fan directly into the power supply rather than the motherboard. You might need a 3-4 pin adapter to do this.

    Are you using new themral paste. Did you remove the original paste properly.

    Also if the heatsink is not hot it usually means you have it seated incorrectly. take it off and clean both surfaces. Then add new thermal paste and put the heatsink back on. Make sure you follow the instructions for applying paste and attaching the heatsink carefully.

    If the heatsink isn't hot, that suggests even more that it's not seated correctly. I'd check a setting in the bios regarding the fan speed, not worry about an adaptor right now. And a standard 3->4pin adaptor will work.

    Grey pad? Is this some sort of thermal interface material (like thermal paste in solid form)? ...

    In any case, heat is not being transfered to the heatsink properly. Take off ANY pads, materials, covers, plastics, etc... etc... between the heatsink and the processor, make sure there is nothing between them, put on a nice THIN layer of Artic silver thermal paste and remount.

    I run a LGA 3.4 chip on an ASUS p5a-something mobo and have had nothing but trouble with it. I originally tried to use the stock intel fan but the 'new and improved' mounting really sucks and I could never get a consistant good seat of the fan. When I managed to get to BIOS it idled around 60+ degrees C. I was plagued with shutdowns and reboots until I realized that sucker heated up instantly and needed serious cooling. I couldn't load windows until I got a waterblock for it.

    Anyway with watercooling I get about 30C idle and mid 40's under load. Even when I OC'd it to 4ghz and benchmarked it, the temps never reached 50C. Air cooling is not the way to go with these current LGA chips. Maybe they'll get better.

    Its just the stock thermal pad that comes on all retail processor's heatsinks...Should work fine for non overclocked systems....Most likely an oc or improper mounting, possibly even a bad sensor but doutfull...

    Questions asked and answered....thread is done...
