hello. I have recently had a prob with a amd 3000+ . It was running at 61c that was with the thermo pad in place. I was told my waranty could be void if I use anything else. Well after 3 days of worrying I used silocone paste and now It runs around 48c is this ok? Now I want to get some cooling in to the PC. What is the best thing to do.. I have one side fan blowing out already. I would like to make sure it will never creep up again. AdvicePlease... Spec..Heatsink and fan came packed with CPU..
