I have a Core 2 Duo E4500 2.2GHz. I recently removed the heatsink(for cleaning) and since my PC runs at 60 degrees. Idles at around 55 degrees. Sometimes (when multiple tabs are open in firefox) the computer hits 70 degrees and shuts down. Yesterday i purchased some thermal compound and applied it to the cpu and heatsink as shown in Rifle_Grunt's guide to building a PC. Now the idle temps are 45 degrees at idle and 68-72 degrees at 100% CPU load(running Prime95). Is this normal..?
Room Temperature is around 35 degrees.
All temperatures in degrees celcius.
