ok.. i did what hoot and the others told me. i removed the heatsink cleaned it, reinstalled the bolts makeing sure everything was tight and reapplied some thermal grease. i took off all my fans and lowered the voltage down to 1.65. i am now running at 37c and i think i know what the problem was. I have an enermax 430 power supply that has a fan directly above my cpu almost touching it. that whole area was hot until i unplugged it. whatta you know .. not only is that thing heating my system but its also keeping me from overclcoking well cuz it aint supported by AMD( read this problem at cluboc). I still plan on getting some artic silver and the card cooler xt along with some delta 60mm fans . let me know what you guys think.
