    The temp drop came from the cleaning and reseating the HS. Dont think that the AS5 gave you that big drop in temps. It may have helped it by 1-2° but thats about it.

    It makes good sense to at least every 3 months to give the inside and out a good clean up. As long as it is done correctly of course.

    I made sure that all the ribbons were twisted, all the dust was removed and an extra exhaust was added just the other day.

    My PC feels very cold still and with a little bios changing can get 15% more speed out of my processor. I got the speed of 1.75 from 1.5 without frying the chip!

    Slight over clocking is o.k., extreme is sheer suicide.
