O.k, well I got my computer about 6 months ago, and my CPU is a Q6600 that I overclocked up to 3ghz. I used Intel's TAT to read the temps and I was idling around 39-42C. Now I'm noticing that I am idling around 55C. I used AS5 and still have the intel stock fan and I don't know why my temps are so much higher. I clean out the dust atleast every other week if not more and I bought my computer in the summer, and its cooler out now (Not that that would even change my temps by 10+ degrees.) The only thing that I could possibly think of being the culprit here is the AS5, bought alot of people have been saying that it doesn't "creep" that much and it should be lasting a lot longer than 6 months. What do you guys suggest I do to get my temps back before I go spend 50 bucks on a after market cooler.
