I just got my upgrade done (YAY!). but with its completion arose a new menace: My celeron's temperature is fluctuating over a wide spectrum (between 32c and 66c), and most of the time its running way too hot. How in hell's freezer can I fix this issue and hogtie my celeron's temperature into submission?

try using as5, but make sure ur making full contact with ur heatsink. you might not be applying enough pressure to ur cpu.


funny offtopic story: i stuck my mobile celeron into an intel mobo. the stock hsf taht came with it didnt contact the die so i used pennies (there was no integrated hs/ heat spreader on the celeron) needless to say the temps jumped to 170F on load.
