Default Re: Zalman CNPS9500LED temps too damn high.

When you take it off take a straight-edge and check the base. If you can see light between the base and the straight-edge the base is concave. Either RMA it or draw file it flat with sandpaper. RMA if you are in no hurray otherwise it takes a lot of elbow grease to get it flat and then polishing it to a mirror finish. A lot of overclockers like to polish the base.
