I still haven't gotten around to getting some more as5 yet. Maybe today. What heatsink do you use? I'm using the xp-90 with generic heatsink grease for now and I'm idling at 35-36. cpu at 2706.
I know my temps are way above what they should be.

Anyhow, this is the HSF I'm using:

I'm gonna' try re-seating the HSF and see if that might help. I know this cooler is beefy enough to keep this CPU cool. I just figure it could be the crap thermal grease I'm using- or the HSF just isn't making proper contact.
