Even if you don't go with the Volcano, at the very least get the Arctic Silver III thermal paste as it will reduce your temps by at least 4*C.
I am curious as to which hsf you have.

That is one low rent heat sink, performance wise!
Time for a new one. :wink:

Yes, it does look good, but it just doesn't work. Thermaltake came out with the Orb series of heatsinks that looked great, but their performance was lousy. :roll:

Well i will be investing in a Volcano and some thermal grease soon. I plan on unlocking (or attempting to unlock) this 2100+.
