    I think the best option is to take it back to the people who installed it to sort it out. The temps are not normal.

    Yes, take it back, I suspect the pump is weak, or U/S

    Hi, not yet, nothing has changed yet. I plan on taking it back to the original shop that assembled it for me. That was about 2.5 years ago so I am not sure if the watercooler is covered under warranty, if in fact that's the problem. I'll let them look at it and try to solve it.
    I have a work trip overseas in a few weeks time, just waiting for that to be confirmed. If it is, I'll plan to drop it in to them before I go, so they can work on it when I'm away.

    Right now as I type this it's sitting about 75 degrees. That's just with Outlook, Firefox and Chrome open, and both FF and Chrome have a flash page open. So nothing that should be too taxing to cause that heat.

    Hi,
    I have an update for anyone interested.
    As some of you suspected, it was the watercooler. I took the PC back to the shop I bought it from. They put a regular fan cooling in to test and straight away got lower temps.
    They ended up putting in a new watercooler unit in, right now as I type this (OUtlook and Firefox only running) it's about 26 degrees. Huge improvement.

    Side grump - they first told me the old watercooler was out of warranty. So we went ahead and bought a new one. Only afterwards did I find out the old watercooler *was* still under warranty. They had assumed the old one was a 2 year warranty but never checked to confirm, turns out actually it was a 3 year. By this time they had already installed the new one, then tried say it was not their fault as I had authorised them to go ahead with the new one.
    I told them I only authorised them to do that because they told me old one was not under warranty! Maybe 10% my fault for not double-checking myself.
    I was running out of time and really couldn't be bothered with arguing with them. They ended up giving me the new watercooler at cost and if I can get the old one replaced or repaired under warranty, I'll probably just sell it and cut my losses.

    A good result in the end eventually. Now overclock that thing and get the temps back up there ;-)

    Sometimes (as in my last one) the heat sink is attached to the cpu by the paste, quite hard.
    They were 4 years together!
    It was virtually impossible for me to prise them apart just using my fingers (no screw drivers allowed!)
    After reading up on it, I resorted to my heat gun.
    After quite a few goes, the paste did not seem to be "melting" but then all of a sudden I was able to twist it off.

    (But I had also applied some iso alchol all around the joint, but that did not seem to have a visual effect)

    Also there are many different view as to how to apply the thermal paste, pea sized blob, a cross mark or an all over thin coat.

    I went for the overall thin coat.
    That seems to make sense to me.
    And my Brand new Ryzen CPU and Heatsink came with a thin overall coating already on the Heatsink.
    So what colour is your Adkaf?
