I just installed a new fx8350 chip.
However in the begining I tried to install an aftermarket cooler
So I applied the paste. a thin layer (the Pea method)
however I had a lot of trouble with the cooler and decided to switch to the factory cooler and the install went much better.
But I think the cooler came with it's own thermal paste.
I am wondering i I over applied?
Also my standard idle temps are about 45 degrees C in the bios, right around 48 in windows.
When I really push the CPU loading Unreal 4 engine. the temps go over 60 degrees C
Do I have a temp issue?
Have I applied too much thermal paste?
Or is this normal?
