Dirty AMD Heatsink



Ok for a long time i was having extremely high temps on my cpu...i dont use anything special just the standard boxed AMD heatsink and fan...but today i cleaned it off..the fins on the heatsink fan are sooooo close togethor that it had actually created an entire layer of dust so now air was getting to it..so just a heads up for anyone who has one of these.

You could use a shim. They're not to keep air out, but it would greatly decrease the open space.


You might want to consider some high quality thermal paste also. Arctic 3 is a good product.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
