    Nah, mate. I'd stay in bed and get another hours sleep...:zzz:

    Course it's worth it!:haha: Just get some fresh heatsink paste, and google some instructions to loosen and lift the heatsink, which may be well stuck to the processor. You are looking at a 20% improvement here which may really help your gaming experience. You might want to upgrade the bios first to be sure it all works 100%.:cool:

    it can only go faster, but you won't notice much of a difference.
