I've got an athlon xp 2600+ barton at 3200+. It runs at around 37-39 idle and 40-43 full load. I've got an Extreme Volcano 12 cooling this down, along with two exhaust fans and one intake for the case. I just wanna know if there's possibly a way to spread paste better, because I'm not the best at doing it, I don't think.. so could someone give me a walkthrough on doing that? As stupid and nubbish as that sounds, it's important to spread it right.. contact with the heatsink and cpu is definitely important. I know that my temperatures are fine but I wanna see if I can get them lower..
