yeah thats right around 41/42c.
im guessing that an idle temp, it would be even better if it was a full load temp, but , either way, thats fine for an xp @1.68ghz.

as3 is arcitc silver 3 its a silver transfer compound helps temps usually around 2-5C, also the 27cfm fan on ur heatsink is weak, if its 80mm switch it with one of the 52 cfm exhausts ur temps will improve garanteed... ill go check up on ur heatsink.

edit: ok seems its a 70mm fan.. with a little modding the 80mm fan shouldnt b hard to put on there. good luck :D

Are you using AS3 or any thermal paste (heat transfer compund) at all? If not, no matter what kind you put on there, it will help. If it's the tape on there, that will cause higher temps than paste, but it's usually not easy to get off. If you're really worried, you could lower your overclock. Either way, I think whoever suggested to use one of your higher cfm exhausts on the heat sink has a good idea. That, along with AS3 will yield much better results.

He's probably using the THERMAL PAD that came with the sync, and NO ONE has told him to TAKE OFF the thermal pad BEFORE he installs AS3.
