    for that cpu i will not worry much abt the temp as Vnf4ultra said they are "safe" temperature, what u can try is
    * adding a better cpu heatsink and fan
    * try using a better paste like artic silver and such
    * try adding a higher rated fan rather than a generic fan

    hope this helps. :grinthumb

    The best thing to use for cleaning your CPU and heatsink is 99% Isopropyl alcohol with a clean rag and/or cotton swabs/qtips.

    :hotbounce Hello Kol Indian sorry of course I meant the core of the cpu ( two nations seperated by the same language lol ) but Soul Havester has kindly suggested Isoproply alchol what ever that is told you I was new to computers but did not realise it invoved chemistry lol Kopite

    Do you live in the U.S.?

    It's in just about every supermarket and pharmacy. You can pick it up just about anywhere, from Safeway to Albertsons to Fred Meyers to Walgreens to Walmart. It's cheap, usually just a few dollars for a bottle, and it goes a long way. It is an absolutely wonderful solvent and cleaning agent. I use it in many things, from cleaning my razors to lapping heatsinks.

    Just ask an attendant where the "rubbing alcohol" is and they can probably direct you. Make SURE you get the 99% stuff though. It is sold in mixtures of 70% and 99%. The 70% is good, but 99% is much stronger and more effective.


    Also, I think this goes without saying but I will anyways: Don't drink it. Your liver will fail and you will die.
