P4 1.6@ w/Volcano 7+
after installation temps were at 55c
I pulled the cpu and it looks like the
hsf assembly is not making enough
contact. (based on the paste footprint)
added a bit more thermal paste.
temps are still climbing after running
nonstop for 3 days now,
mobo = 50c
cpu = 73c
fan = 6230 rpm

Clips are attached correctly and fully seated.

Help please

Wow, thats mighty high temp for cpu. I have a p41.6a myself o/c to 2.4 with retail sink/fan and I run 39c idle 48c load. I'm not an expert but did you try reinstalling the the fan and cpu? Clean off the grease and try it again. Don't want to sound stupid but did you connect the fan ?

I've heard that applying to much thermal paste can be a hazard.

No Offense meant, None taken.

Reinstalled three times
I think the hsf is not seating properly.
Retainer bracket is seated and locked.
Retainer clips on hsf are fully engaged in bracket
I may swap the hsf out for the intel oem and see
what happens.

Is your fan controlled by temp sensors? Your fan RPM maybe be too slow or the mobo is giving the fan wrong signals to your fan :roll: Try plug fan directly to the power supply.
